Meanwhile, back at the Heron colony ... highlights of my glimpses through the leaves into sacred spaces.
Today's Heron nesting Colony visit made me realize that there are certainly several different ages and stages of Baby Heron's residing in the treetops.
When the people from North Saanich Marina decided to cut down trees surrounding these nests they scared off the birds. For a while we thought that they had abandoned them completely. Who likes a chainsaw ripping down your wind cover???
Anyway, some of the herons were looking fairly advanced and nearing fledge today and others were very young and small, so parent Herons must have decided to return and try nesting again after being chased away.
I do hope that these trees and nests remain there as they are a unique part of our Peninsula and do not deserved to be flattened in the name of "progress"
