Description

The first photo is a green heron. There was a nest in our blue spruce tree right next to our house. There were 3 babies, but one fell out of the nest and died. I had never seen a Green Heron before, so it was a real thrill to catch this fledgling as it was learning to fly. The 2nd photo is a nest of Barn Swallows. There are 5 babies in the nest.

Backyard Birds

This juvenile Green Heron had just fledged from its nest in our Blue Spruce tree right next to our house. There were 3 babies, but one fell out of the nest and died. This bird flew from our tree to the roof of our corn crib and sat there for quite awhile before flying away. We live at Moville, Iowa. I had never seen a Green Heron before, so this was a great thrill.
