    Info and guide to understanding this magnificent bird

HERON Nests Count 2011

With permission from the Park, we headed out to get a good count of the entire Heronry at Holland Ponds park. Venturing into these areas are prohibited, especially during the Heron nesting season. The birds are very skid-dish and can be scared off their nests. In some cases….permanently.

With 21 nests in the original front Heronry and another 18 nests in the newer rear Heronry, the park is ready to welcome back the Great Blue Herons for nest year, with 39 solid nests. The Heronry is growing quickly!
