Heronry at Jonas Green Park.

I got my first vaccine shot, and the second is scheduled for a couple of weeks from now. It will be a relief to have that over with.

I’ve gotten to Possum Point, Greenbury Point, Quiet Waters, Truxtun Park and CBEC in the last week. There weren’t any spectacular finds, but the Ospreys have arrived and the weather is (Mostly) warmer. A couple of Trumpeter Swans broke the monotony.

The Heronry is the one I found last year as the pandemic started and didn’t get to observe. I may get a better chance this year.
