Crowded House....uh, nest

You just have to wonder how and why the Great Blue Herons select a particular tree.  There were three or four nest in this one particular tree.  With the young ones getting so large now, you just have to wonder how there is room for all.  A bit of bickering between the young when an adult would bring in food shows they are getting a little nest fever.

It was quite some distance from where you could stand to photograph them.  400mm with 2x extender which meant manual focusing so they are not the best shots.

Wow! they are crowded. I am loving seeing all these baby birds.

It was pretty cool seeing four heron nests in one tree. The young ones in the very top nest appeared a bit older. Yeah, I love this time of year with the baby birds.

Oh my goodness, that is quite the sight to see! It is a wonder the branches hold up.

It was pretty neat. You just have to wonder why they all nested in the same tree. I suspect they will be leaving soon.
