I keep going back to the Rookery to watch the development of the Herons, from arriving and building their nests, to the newborns, to watching the chicks learn to fly and eventually all leaving the nests...only to come back each year and do it again.
It is truly a gift to be so close and watch the hundreds of birds as they live their lives... This is a collection of photos from the hundreds of Herons nesting at the 9th Street Rookery. I recorded the amazing sounds they make (sorry for the occasional cars going by). It is always a joyous ruckus of sounds and activities, and for those who can't visit this gives you a little idea of the wonder and fun.
