I just went to check out the herons nesting at Thornton Creek, literally at 95th NE and Sandpoint Way. What a beautiful sight. I have never had a chance to see herons nesting before even though there are quite a few known sites around Seattle neighborhoods. I guess being laid-off has it's perks- I get to take advantage of a gorgeous day. While I was there I also saw a hawk flying around the nests but the crows chased it away.
Afterwards I swung by Kiwanis Ravine in Magnolia to see if the other known heron nesting spot was active. There was nothing going on there. So I'll leave you with these herons from Sandpoint Way.
