“One More for the Big Year”

On May 15th while out enjoying the woods at Pine Gulch Creek, I managed to finally tie into my first Green Heron for the year, #197. It appears that they may in fact be breeding there as they are acting “nesty” and hanging out up in the crown of Alders and Willows. They are also vocalizing in a way that I have never heard them before. About every 30 seconds the adult utters a deep “woody” sound that is not unlike something a Raven or a Crow might “say”. I would spell it something like, “took” or “tuk” with a real hollow sound. Interesting.
