2013 Heron Observation Network Photos from the Field

January 6, 2014 at 4:29 pm

To celebrate the Heron Observation Network's fifth year, I put together a collection of Photos from the Field, taken by myself, co-workers, and some very talented HERON volunteers.  Many THANKS to all the HERON volunteers who monitored colonies, and to the landowners that allowed access.  Here's to another exciting year ahead of us!  Happy 2014! http://youtu.be/GW31bH30grM
