More birding

I got up early this morning and hooked up with our builder, Rob Schumacher. We were heading back to the grouse lek so I could try for some better shots. Unfortunately, the grouse wandered off before the sun really came up, and the pictures were pretty mediocre. Nice grouse show though.

On the way home, we ran across the Great Blue Heron rookery I had heard about. I knew it was near a particular river, so I figured it would be a bunch of low nests, hard to find. Oh well, so much for my birding knowledge. Seems they are all up in big nests at the tops of trees. This was shot from a long way away, but we could tell they were busy building up the nests. It will be interesting to go back in June and see what has happened.
