Nest updates

This weekend, we checked in on our winter nesting friends at Dawson Creek Park. One heron was standing on its platform nest in the large Doug fir while another was watching over its space on a higher branch. If the nests are a success, these birds will be in the tree well into July.

The other nest at the park belongs to a pair of great horned owls.

The nest was still active as evidenced by a dark form in the break of a large trunk. The nest is so far away that the only development we've noticed is that the female has changed position since last week.

I have not found any other nests yet, but I expect to see the apartment house finches building any day now.
