Grey Heron apartment

on 13th February 2019

“A sizeable nesting colony of Grey Herons (Ardea cinerea jouyi) was located.

“This small section of the Rain Tree (Albizia saman) has 14 nests (some hidden).

“I counted another 10 nests in other parts of the tree.

“So at least 24 active nest at one time in all stages – some building, others incubating and a few with juveniles.”
