The Nature of Framingham's One Year Anniversary!

This blog started on March 19, 2009. It's time to celebrate my anniversary! I was going to have a retrospective of the past year, but since I am already late, I decided to post pictures of my favorite subject instead. These were taken today, and I feel quite good about them.

The Great Blue Herons have returned to the Framingham rookery! Today we saw them updating their nests.

They were flying back and forth over our heads, going from the island to the trees on the shore. We were fairly sure they weren't getting food in the trees, but what they were doing was a mystery.

Whatever they were doing, they seemed happy about it!

When we saw that most were carrying twigs and sticks back to the island, we realized they were updating their nests!
