Heron Rookery

Owego Great Blue Heron Rookery

I visited the Great Blue Heron Rookery in Owego today and saw a lot of activity going on with the male herons leaving and returning to their nests with food for the females who were nest sitting to keep their eggs warm. Sometimes, the males brought back nesting material to build up their nests. What a wonderful asset to our community.
