Great Blue Herons

Out in central NJ are two well established Great Blue Heron rookeries. They are always really interesting but are also tick laden so always check yourself for these pariahs. Mercer County: GBH nest GBH Ocean County: OC Rookery_1 OC Rookery_2 Looks to be a bumper crop, good luck little nesters!

Faces ony Mothers can Love

No NJ summer would be complete without a posting about vultures. We get both Black and Turkey here and they are both quite numerous. While doing the OCBC I stumbled upon one of their nests. Black Vulture Baby Black Vulture There's so much roadkill here that they stay fat and happy. TV The Prize
