The Great Blue Heron Rookery!

Great blue herons and the black birds are Double-crested  cormorants.

The nests are .2 of a mile from where i was standing...need to walk around the park to get closer to these guys. Only had the Coolpix610 so flying bird photos are blurry...but the light was great, the sounds winged blackbirds singing and kvetching.

 Double Crested Cormorants
 Fly softly and carry a big stick. Adding on to the nest.
 Flying around constantly doing home repair all evening.
 bad quality photo, cropped a lot, but the bird lands on tiny limb. Anti gravity birds!

Awkward bird about to land with a stick. Just got in from avian home depot.
