The Blue Herons of Kenmore

Tucked away behind the Kenmore Park & Ride is an area of growth where Blue Herons make nests and inhabit every year. Dear noticed increased activity at the sight so I stopped by with my camera. It’s just so odd to see these large birds way up high in these trees in their nests.

The area around these nests is fenced off and this is the closest I was able to get to the trees. I might go back on a day that isn’t so dreary and see if I can catch some of the herons flying in and out.

We have another low key weekend and Dear has Monday off for President’s Day. Katie arrives Sunday night from North Carolina so she can be here for all the last minute wedding details. I’m going to do all the relaxing I can before Tuesday when we hit the ground running! Hope you have a nice weekend.

  1. That is so cool! Such beautiful birds…and to get to watch them build their nests and rear their young is such a neat thing.

    Say hi to Katie for me.

  2. So much nicer than having giant vultures in the trees as I do. I’m hoping that they don’t find their way home this year.

    A relaxing weekend as you gear up for the big doings.

  3. Wow, I had no idea they nested in trees. For some reason I thought they rested in the grasses around water. You got some great pics even though you couldn’t get past the fence.
