Scott had a meeting in Danville on Tuesday morning. After his meeting we drove to Heron Park to check out the heron rookery. The parking area was closed, and huge chunks of cement were stacked behind one of the gates. There was room to pull off the road in front of the gate. We parked and walked the boardwalk before checking out the rookery.
We saw four Turkey Vultures soaring in the air over the park and later over Danville. Although there were no Herons sitting on the nests, four Herons flew over while we were there.
Two Red-tailed Hawks were cruising the area.
Four Bald Eagles flew over while we walked the trail near the Heron rookery.
Thousands of Canada Geese were on the water, with more coming in the entire time we were at the park. The sound of their honking filled the air.
These two geese were in the little pond by the rookery.
Several Red-winged Blackbirds were trilling around the edges of the water.
