Bird Pic Of The Week

Great Blue Herons

(Ardea herodias)

Where: Richmond, VA • James River Park, Pipeline Rapids Rookery

Notes: In 2006 on the riverfront in Richmond, Virginia a heron rookery began to develop on a small island just yards away from the metropolis of towering skyscrapers, busy bridges, railroad tracks and trestles. What was once a few nests, has grown to over forty active, mating pairs at this colony in the past four breeding seasons. This has become quite a spectacle. At this time of year the courtship displays, mating, and greetings for the arrival new nesting materials are nearly constant. It is like a very busy airport. The occasional squabble occasionally beaks out when a neighbor wanders in too close to another's spot. Soon eggs will be laid and chicks will hatch, ready to be fed fresh fish, tadpoles and frogs from the river. As I witnessed this display at the arrival of her mate several times, I was reminded at the importance of greeting each other properly. That first few moments can truly set the tone for some time to come.
