Nests, Nests, Nests

I have been visiting Ballston Creek Preserve now for weeks…it started with lots of Heron nests and now there are so many babies. There was a Great Horned Owl and baby who fledged after my second visit. The Osprey sit high above and call out their warning sign as I get to the end of the path – no babies there yet. The Hairy Woodpecker I just happened upon while watching the others. Whoever says you have to go far from home to see beauty? All this in one spot! Totally enchanting!

Great Horned Owl Nest

A pair of Owls nests in this area each spring. It is a treasure hunt to find the new nest and follow the young until they fledge. Seeing Mom come in with a snake was a special treat.
