As others have noted, there has been no recent nesting activity at the heron rookery located on the south edge of the Edmonds marsh. While making my usual rounds today, I met a nice young woman named Rosa who was also out photographing birds at the marsh. Rosa told me that she had just witnessed what looked like two herons starting a nest on the marina breakwater across from the Beach Front Cafe.
I walked over there and saw a heron standing by a small accumulation of branches and twigs located on the wooden/metal portion of the breakwater which serves as the entrance to the marina. It can be seen across the marina directly west of the Beach Front Cafe. I took some photos and will add it to my route. If anyone else wants to take a look and needs help locating it, shoot me an e-mail and we'll arrange to meet up down there.
