Blue Heron
Photographer: Heather Ainsley-Kerr
Location: Local Nesting Site in Northwest PA on the Shenango River
My husband and I were hiking one day and happened upon the nesting area but were across the river from it so we headed out a few days later in our kayaks and paddled up stream to see if I could get some closer pics. Sure enough I did! There were about 50+ nests in a 60 ft. tall old Sycamore along the river in the center of it all 2 bald eagles also have a nest but I was not as lucky to capture them.
