Amid crashing thunderstorms, sweltering heat, and cool foggy mornings, the Great Blue Herons of Sapsucker Woods raised a boisterous trio of young herons this season. Whether you’ve watched from the very beginning or only discovered them as fledging began, you can look back at the beauty, humor, and wonder of the herons in this slideshow.
The Bird Cams community was instrumental in posting screencaps to the online Flickr image group dedicated to the cams, and our moderators kept everyone posted via Twitter, the live chat, and by moving the pan-tilt-zoom cam for all to enjoy. Thank you all for an amazing experience.
New Heron Chat Hours
For the remainder of the season, our live chat will be open for two-hour blocks beginning at 6:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 6:00 p.m. Eastern time. Stop in, say hello, and watch the young herons foraging as the leaves slowly change color.
