Nancy, this is amazing! A very good blog of the incredible happenstance of birds, birder, equipment, and perseverance.

Subject: [Tweeters] Green Heron Nest
I do not post here very often, but I thought I would give you all a glimpse into how I spent my summer. I found a Green Heron nest while kayaking in June. The parents were mating in the nest on June 17th. I found a location on land to watch the nest, since the kayak was too close and too disruptive. The land observation spot was on the south bank of a river, the nest on the north bank, so the lighting was optimal. The best part was that there was a very good view into the nest. For me this was a first. I have seen chicks plenty of times, but never had a view into the nest. I have written up 4 blog posts, from week one to week four of the chicks development. When you click on the link, you then need to click on Week One to see the first post.
Happy birding - Nancy Morrison
