February 24, 2018: Lives of Great Blue Herons

Today I saw two chicks in the Great Blue heron nest.  On a different nest, mom was incubating and dad was off fishing.

A different nest - Mom in the incubating position with what seems to be a nictitating membrane covering her eyes (the eyes seem dull instead of the usual bright)
