  2. Most of the nests in the heronry have been there for many years and are large, sprawling structures that the birds add to and improve over time. The newer nests are small and difficult to see unless the owners are sitting on them. My problem this year has been identifying the smaller, newer nests. Sometimes, something spooks the herons and they rise into the air, before returning to their nests or perches within a few minutes. I find it frustrating that some return to areas of the heronry that I am unable to see, and the foliage gets denser by the day.
