New generation of Great Blue Herons born in cypress rookery - August 9, 2020

The cypress trees in the wetland near the proposed DePave Park at Alameda Point have served as a safe and secure nesting site for Great Blue Herons for many years. This year is no exception, despite the trees having died and barely standing. On May 7, 2020, Audubon Society bird observer Dawn Lemoine counted 13 juveniles in the nests.
