Spring is in the heron

The herons have all built their nests now and are happily sitting on them. It seemed like a good time to post some pictures from the early days of nest repair.

It's a little hard to tell but this bird is carrying a stick and coming in for a landing as you can see below.

Even herons have to take a break from nest building sometimes.



What if we built a zoo and the animals just happened to show up? This heron did exactly that. It's sitting in the penguin exhibit at the Woodland Park Zoo enjoying the abundant little fish.

Everyone else enjoyed watching the heron. It's a good thing herons can't read.

That's hysterical. I never thought about wild birds landing in a zoo for lunch.

To the heron, the zoo is probably a great place. He flies in, gets a quick bit to eat, and enjoys a bit of people watching. :-)
