Still Waiting on the Cornell Herons
The Great Blue Herons of Sapsucker Woods continue to leave us guessing about their inclination to breed here this year. The long winter took its toll on the old nest, which fell to the pond during an April storm soon after the male heron returned. After a couple days of little activity, the male was seen courting and mating with a second heron in the darkness at the nest site. This was followed by stick-carrying and more courting, but no nest has been constructed yet.
We’re still waiting for a clear sign that the herons are going to breed on camera this year before opening up chat. Till then, we’ll feature the @CornellHerons Twitter feed on the side of the page so you can easily scroll back through observations. Lots of turtles, songbirds, and other wildlife still being seen on camera.
Thanks for watching and keep your fingers crossed!
