Great Blue Heron and Chicks, Venice FL

The Venice Rookery, operated by the Venice Area Audubon Society, is, apparently, world famous with bird photographers.  It’s not a large area, but I understand why.  Here are views I had a few days ago just after sunrise.  A very chilly sunrise, I might mention . . .

    Glad there was something there for you. Looks like a relatively young chick.

      Jim – I was surprised to see chicks of what looked like widely varying ages in the one rookery. But I’ve never seen herons with babies before, so don’t have any real basis for any expectation at all.
