It’s that time of year

Last month when we visited Rockport, Texas to see the Whooping Cranes, Linda Murdock, a fellow blogger and photographer (waaaaay better than me), noticed I was posting photos of our trip on Twitter and so she sent me a tweet recommending the Great Blue Heron rookery. Turns out, it was just down the street from where we were staying.

There was a lot of activity going on at the nests–a lot of flying in with sticks to build up nests and lots of canoodling.

The rookery is right in town in Rockport – Fulton, just off Fulton Beach Road overlooking Little Bay. And there’s a good parking lot with pavement where you can park your car and get good looks. The area is cordoned off so you don’t disturb the nesting site.
