ON THE FLY: Herons and egrets (photos)

Thanks to Jacinta Cillis-Asquith for sharing these photos, taken last week in our area.

“Stittsville…home to Herons everywhere,” she writes. “I could not fit enough trees into my picture. This must have been the general meeting of these birds. There were over 30 herons and egrets! A pretty amazing day.”

(We’ve had a few readers ask where these photos were taken. Cillis-Asquith says that wildlife photographers will typically not share exact locations in order to preserve the natural habitat of the wildlife.)

  1. “wildlife photographers will typically not share exact locations”… On the other hand, birders often do 🙂

    I haven’t been by recently but a couple of weeks ago, there was a large congregation of egrets, herons, cormorants, geese, and other small waders, etc. in the new flood water ponds at the south east corner of March Rd and Richardson Side Rd. I’d never seen that many egrets in the same area in Ottawa before.

    And yes, do not disturb their habitat.
