This photo shows just a few of the Great Blue Heron nests in Cedar Creek's 60+ heron nesting site!|
You've probably seen these giant birds overhead. Adult wingspan is six to eight feet, and they fly with neck snug and legs outstretched. They often make an "ONK!" call in flight. You see their straight, tall posture in area pondsides, wetlands or stream edges. But few have seen the tree-top holonies where these magnificent birds spend the spring and summer raising their young.
The Cedar Creek heronry is sequestered in the scenic river portion of Cedar Creek, surrounded by privately-held forest land.
CCWP made a $1,000 donation in June 2000, and we would like to do much more!
