Late this afternoon I visited the GBH rookery in Portland. Counted 85
herons. Mostly standing upright on the nests, some adding new branches
No apparent sitting on eggs. Also 50 Ring-Necked ducks and a few
Mallards. Heard a few woodpeckers drilling. Many RWB and Grackles. 3
Strangely only 2 Canada Geese in the cornfield, none on the water.
The rookery is best viewed in the morning. I could only see the herons
in silhouette late in the day.
