A pair of Great Blue Herons

Just after 7 AM Saturday, I saw 5 great blue herons at the same time in the water where the Skokie River passes the south side of the Dixon Prairie. Usually I see only one, my regular GBH that hangs out near Evening island. It sure was a beautiful morning, cool breeze before the heat of the day. I did a fast walk around the perimeter road, but I took off without entering the main garden islands. Chicago Botanic Garden Jul 21, 2012 L1040896.dng
