Blue Heron Rookery

This time of year is the best time to catch a glimpse of the thriving great blue heron rookery on the farm.  Blue herons are the largest heron in North America.  They feed on fish and other small animals.  We love having these residents on the farm because they are a natural form of pest management.  In addition to great blue herons, Stahlbush also sees bald eagles, golden eagles and great egrets from time to time.

Here is a photo recap of the blue heron gathering on the farm.
