A heronry in Morris County is having a productive season. Incubation in April has led to Great Blue Heron sprouts in May.
In a recent year, a Great Horned Owl had a nest in one of the condominium trees. The Great Blue Herons seemed not to mind and had nests above and near the owl nest. Below is a typical image of the nest arrangements. The snags seem fragile but the Great Blue Herons return every year and rear young.
