Big Babies

My husband and I discovered this great blue heron nest full of chicks on Grafton Pond a couple of years ago. We watched them for a long time, and then were rewarded because one of the parents showed up to feed them.

The chicks were HUGE and completely silent until the parent showed up. Then they raised a ruckus for attention by clacking their beaks. The half moon in Jay’s picture just makes this even more special.
