Green Heron male waiting to feed chicks 20120419

The Green Heron hatchlings in Nest #4HT are now about 7-9 days old and are surprisingly active. I thought there were only three, but I saw the fourth, smallest one, today. They had already been fed by the male, but they mobbed the female when she approached the nest to shelter them. They did cause her to regurgitate a small amount of prey, then they settled down beneath her wings.Visit blog.rosyfinch.com
