No Plans to Add Nesting Platform
There are currently no plans to build a platform in the tree the Great Blue Herons have used in previous years. As the tree is dead and not entirely stable we are unable to add anything other than the cam equipment to the tree. The herons have been able to nest successfully in the tree since 2009, with new sticks added each season. High winds caused the nest to fall this year unfortunately. If herons wanted to they could construct a nest within a week.
