Last year, I was fortunate enough to watch a white faced heron nest at Balyang. It was so fun to watch the chicks grow up.
I’ve been keeping an eye out in the tree where they nested in last year. Nothing.
Last week, I saw these two guys sitting on a nesting box. I was so excited. It may have been because I saw a new opportunity for my ‘birds doing a poo‘ photography series. Alas, I wasn’t quick enough for that. I still got some beautiful photos of them.
They were a bit uncertain with the landings at times when they moved from the nest box.
I tried to get photos from various angles so I could compare their markings and colouration to an adult herons.
They have now settled at the mating tree. I did see an adult visit them briefly. Not sure how much interaction they have with parents after leaving the next. I saw the adult hanging around in a different section the next day.
Will be interesting to see what they do now.
