Yellow-crowned Night-Heron Nest 9-HT 2nd pair incubationg 20120610

This morning we visited the heron rookery, our first visit since April 22.Yellow-crowned Night-Heron Nest #9 (herbicide treated) had hatched out at least 2 chicks that I last photographed on April 22. My neighbor Scott said he did subsequently see fledglings near that nest. Interestingly, after Nest #9.5, which was located rather high in an adjacent non-treated tree, fell apart in a windstorm, that pair apparently took over nest #9. Today there was an adult incubating on Nest #9. The three chicks in #10 non-HT, the next nest to the south, were all in the nest this morning. One flew off just after I started to take their picture.
