Driving down highway 50 (the Loneliest Highway) East Past Fallon, towards Stillwater reserve... I saw a bank of huge leafless trees, and a variety of birds sailing around them. We turned into the lane that headed closest to them. What we saw was unexpected. Three and and a few more trees full of large stick and reed nests. And Giant Blue Herons. And lots of Babies.
There were around 50 nests.
...and up to 5 chicks per nest. I saw 2-3 in many of the nests.
Moms and Dads taking turns, watching and feeding.
Can I tel…
