Young Herons getting BIG

June 22, 2011

This years batch of youngsters are now almost as large as the adults. Each of the 37 active nests at Holland Ponds Park, started out with 3-4 youngsters per nest. They are down to 2-3 youngsters per nest. These should make it to fledging.

The young Herons are practicing their flying and fishing techniques as they wait for Mom or Dad to return about every hour with more muscle building food. This is a great time to watch the Heronry at the Park.
