Heron Cam at Stanley Park

Heron 3

With spring comes the Herons nesting at Stanley Park.  This year the City of Vancouver has set up a Heron Cam for people to view them as they nest.  Lest anyone come across this blog in the years to come and click on the link, I shall mention now that the cam is set up for March 2015.

Herons are considered “at risk” so the Heron Cam is meant to educate the public.  When I was at the Park photographing these birds the local ranger told me that the bottom of the trees were fenced off because, as the eggs hatch and the baby herons mature, they occasionally fall out of the nest.  As these are big birds the fencing was needed to prevent humans from getting hit!
