I visited a heron rookery in Ocean City where herons gather to breed. It was quite a spectacular sight to see so many herons flying in and out of the many nests. Mainly yellow-crowned night herons, but also black-crowned and other birds.

I may have found where some of my bluebirds went. This is a nest at Cattus Island in Toms River, NJ, just across the Silver Bay from my townhouse. I had hoped to catch the little ones fledging, but the second time I returned they were gone.
