Of the five heron babies I have been watching, three have now fledged. The youngest two -- creatively called "Four" and Fiver" -- should fly the nest any day now. So I am checking in frequently, in order to see it happen. 'Twill be a sad day when our little Fiver is gone.
One of the great things about watching the nest is that there are two cameras on it from different angles, and one of them can be moved to survey the surrounding pond. One day in June the following sheer adorable-osity of a mama deer and her fawn was captured. Enjoy.
