Green Herons (2) in willow tree – can you see them?

By: Pat Coate

While visiting my father-in-law in Virginia we saw a family of green herons in the willow tree near his pond. The sequence of three pictures shown here move from distant to close-ups. The close-up photos are of an immature green heron, identified as such by the streaking on its neck.

On my way home from a work trip to Rochester I stopped by Conesus Inlet to see if I could find the Red-headed Woodpeckers that were reported there over the weekend. I was lucky enough to get a couple of brief sightings and a couple pictures for ID. This is a new bird for me and it was quite striking.
