Heron's on the Harrison

There hasn't been much in the way of bird activity for the past week or so, just the regulars....

the fields over by Harrison Bay continue to play host to a whole bunch of Canada Geese and Trumpeter Swans.  No doubt there are some ducks in there too although they haven't been very visible.

Guesstimate today was about a 130 Swans and double that number of geese.

The interesting thing today though....

was a bunch of Great Blue Heron perched on this log boom in the river.  This photo only has 5 but there were a total of 9 although a couple were perched on nearby pilings rather than the logs.  We sometimes see herons grouped like this in some of the fields near puddles but this is the first time I recall seeing them on the logs.

Smaller birds have been in short supply....I'm sure they are there, just not showing themselves although today we did spot two....

Brown Creeper and there had been some Black-capped Chickadees in the same area.
