GBH Rookery, Mallards, Mergansers and a Robin

Sighting Robins this time of year indicates spring is not far away. Not to far a Great Blue Heron rookery is becoming populated. Another sign of spring. The Mergansers had no intention of hanging around after discovering me in their space. The Mallards are a skidish bunch. I had disturbed a couple groups prior to what I finally was able to get some photos of.

What beautiful shots, especially the Great Blue Heron nests!

Your Great Blue Heron rookery looks really neat~so different from the palm tree ones here in Florida. Ours don't seem to be having a very successful year...many have already abandoned their nests.

The duck shots are wonderful especially the female Mergansers taken of "nice"!!

I would like to use 1-2 of your photos of the blue heron rookery on a signage project. Please contact me and let me know if it is okay and how to credit you. Thank you.
