Great Blue Heron

It is that time of year again down at the Stanley Park herony (Vancouver, BC), and that time this evening (2018-05-16) when there is one chick and four eggs in one of the nests. Bodes well for serious sibling battles ahead, no doubt.

 

Hopefully there will be no betting on outcomes!

 

We will be able to watch at the streaming live critter camera at:

 

vancouver.ca/parks-recreation-culture/heron-cam.aspx

 

This site enables the viewer to change the orientation of the camera to different trees and nests - but you may have to allow a minute for the camera buffer to load. Once loaded, navigate the icons; firstly at bottom right (to get in line for your chance) and then upper right to select different views.

 

The views from the darker evening hours are time-lapse video clips of nesting activities during the course of the day.

 

And the link below brings up Peter, Paul and Mary (from a while ago) doing "Early Morning Rain":
