I’ve mentioned the Great Blue Herons nesting on an Osprey platform at the Wildlife Center. Well, yesterday, I saw some movement in the nest and got my first peek at the new arrival. Mom has been standing on the nest for a couple of days so I expect the hatching took place earlier but, junior can now raise its head above the nest. At least a little bit.
This is the best shot I got, most were just a bit of grey-white fuzz above the sticks,
Moms head was a bit blurred from rapid movements to get some food up for serving.
Here is a tighter crop to show the baby.
