Everett Herons (was Kiwanis Herons)

Sunday I counted 91 GBH mostly on pilings north of Jetty
Island and south of Steamboat Slough in the Snohomish River
estuary. What seemed unusual is that most were on their own
piling, cormorant-style, rather than standing on log rafts or
log booms. Parts of the area populated by pilings had a heron
on each piling! This is the largest grouping of GBH I have
ever seen here. It is fascinating how their behavior changes
so much with the season.
