The Great Blue Herons of Ballard Locks

Every year, Great Blue Herons nest at Commodore Park near the Hiram Chittenden Locks in Ballard, a suburb of Seattle. They build their nests in the treetops and it’s a pretty cool experience to visit this site, especially for a bird enthusiast.

This is one of my favorite photos; looking for a fresh salmon dinner.

A word of advice is to avoid the benches under these trees as they’re covered in heron poop.

These pics weren’t meant to be black and white but was late in the day and the sun was almost gone. As you can imagine, heron nests are huge.
