Shelley Lake walk

We're going to walk around the lake 2 times, once in each direction for a total of 4 miles.    This should give us the opportunity to view a lot of heron activity.  There are many nests this year.  Bring binocs if you want to see closeups as the nests are very high.

    Thanks to all for coming out. We'll try to do some more Fridays. This next Fri., however, is Valentine's Day and I'm babysitting so I'm thinking Thurs. afternoon at 4. Probably won't be too hard to find a place to eat afterwards on Thurs. if folks are interested. Stay tuned.

    The great blue heron has a few unusual mating habits. It breeds in North and Central America, the Caribbean, Greater Antilles, and the Galapagos Islands. Usually, the great blue heron breeds during the months of March through May in the Northern Hemisphere. The heron's body changes differently while breeding. The grown heron bird has a yellow bill and long neck feathers only when it breeds. The bird also has long and showy plumes on its head, breast, and back while it is in the breeding season. It breeds in the habitat of brackish and freshwater marshes, fields, and other wetland areas. The male will perform a number of things to attract a female. For example, it flies over its own nest in three hundred and sixty-degree turns. The great blue heron has some unique ways of mating

    Ok, could not find when they breed but this is interesting.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
