The Great Blue Herons Have Returned!
Camera #1: To see live stream video of the Great Blue Herons and waterfowl at Cornell's Sapsucker Pond, Click Here.
Camera #2: To see the view from a different angle as well as the activities of feathered friends around the pond, Click Here.
HINTS: Keep BOTH cameras displayed on your screen at the same time. A human will sometimes pan the second camera over the pond to see herons fishing, collecting nest material or just hanging out nearby.
April 1: A heron was spotted at Sapsucker Pond.
April 7: Herons have arrived... 3 of them!
About Great Blue Herons: They usually lay 2-6 eggs and share incubation duties for 25-30 days. Incubation begins with the first egg, and the young hatch asynchronously (not at the same time) over 2-5 days. After hatching, it'll take 7-8 weeks before they fly from the nest for the first time.
