This morning I checked in on the Great Blue Heron Nest Web Cam at: http://cams.allaboutbirds.org/channel/8/Great_Blue_Herons/
Happily I was treated to the appearance of Papa Heron on the nest. He has been identified as the same bird from last year, since he has no rear, right, back toe. I was able to get a nice shot of his right foot as he lifted it up. I got a few nice close-up head shots, as well. As much as I also enjoy watching the Red-Tailed Hawk web cam, http://cams.allaboutbirds.org/channel/16/Red-tailed_Hawks/ , I do favor the Great Blue Herons. Both are great experiences, though, and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology does an extraordinary job with these live web cams.
