Great Blue Heron nesting colony

Great Blue Heron rookery, southern Delaware County, Ohio. I made this image on March 20, 2011.

Doral Chenoweth, photographer/videographer with the Columbus Dispatch, made a neat little video of the Great Blue Heron nesting colony pictured above. He tapped your blogger for the voice-over, and did a great job of assembling the piece. CLICK HERE to watch the vid.

This rookery is easily seen from Taggart Road on the east side of the Olentangy River, just south of Hyatts Road, in Delaware County.

I saw the GBH rookery at the southern end of Cuyahoga Valley NP on my way back from a birding trip to Lake Erie on June 9 last year. The "chicks" were still in the nest but they were huge. A long stand of trees that were just covered with nests loaded down with parents and chicks, almost on top of one another. It was an amazing thing to see!
