A couple of great blue herons is setting up a nest right above where all the ducks like to feed on the same tree that the wood ducks like to hang out in. I hope I don't see any ducklings get eaten by them. Their babies will be hatching/growing about the same time that the ducks will start to hatch their eggs. Last year, there were 15 ducklings hatched in that immediate area and another 5 that often visited close by. Most ducks have their babies in another part of the lake. Cinnamon and Ducky's mate, both first time moms, are acting like they're going to nest near there, too. I will try to get photos of them before they "disappear". Oh well, I guess that's nature. In the meantime, I get to see some herons grow up. I think the killdeer will probably be OK, the herons don't seem to "see" their chicks or they're too fast (after they're three or four days old).
