New Additions at the Wetlands

Nesting season is upon us and the air is filled with parents busily flying back and forth from nest to feed hungry little mouths. Hungry mouths to feed include baby Northern Mockingbirds, Curve-billed Thrashers, Mourning Doves, Inca Doves, Least Terns, Killdeer, Green Herons and a few more species. It can get tricky trying to get pictures of baby birds without disturbing the nests, but luckily some our visitors have BIG camera lenses. This hedge of Green Herons was photographed on Saturday, June 14th.
