    • Thanks, Mare. I’ve never seen the chicks either! I took hundreds of photos hoping for a few good ones 😊

  4. WOW!! Love the crazy herons! Great topknots on the babes! Thank you!!!

    • Thanks, Bailey! There are so many nests in the Ballard Locks I got a stiff neck from looking up! Those babies are amazing to watch. I watched one for ten minutes trying to use their wings for balance to stand up. Sooo sweet.

    • A friend mentioned to me the other day about the nests in the park. It was a really good morning for photographing them. On my way home I stopped at my new hotspots and saw the first waxwing. I love them too!

  5. Great pictures of the Great Blue Herons and their chicks!
