So since I was there and so were the Herons I shot some videos of them. Six videos in all and if you are into nature watch them all, if not then even one or two might be nice for you. Hate Herons then best stay away. As I like to do they are all short, like 30 seconds or so each.

About a week later it was out of the nest but did return to the nest a bit later. When they are out of the nest it seems the a parent is often quite near by.

BTW the nest site from last year isn't there anymore. Don't know if nest went down or whole tree when down but no sign of it.
So here is something for you students of nature. Look at this tree and tell us what you see:
a) A tree that has been attack by cicada in particular ones from brood 14.
b) A tree that is survived sharp sheet ice from last winter.
c) A tree that was attach by a rare tree climbing beaver.
d) A image of a tree that has been altered to make you think something has happen when it hasn't
e) A porcupine stopped by for lunch.
f) I have no idea.
At the buzzer lock in your answers...........BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

In northern WI it wasn't at all uncommon to see the animal up in the tree eating or resting and of course a lot of dead ones along the road ways. They are not know for their speed and I don't think they ever learned about crossing a road and looking both ways........ I mentioned this to my brother who lives up north and he said you don't see them much anymore. Since they were(are?) protected and since most were not on anyone's meal plan one has to wonder what happened to them??? I guess life goes on one way or another.
So while the correct answer could have been "f" it also could have been "e". I'd love to film one someday but that seems pretty unlikely.
BTW I also saw my first turtle of spring on the same day. Looking forward to more adventures in nature. Hope to get out at least twice this coming week, only have to work around elections on the 6th and my wife's second shot on 8th.
