See the herons before they leave the nest
1:00 – 3:00 pm
The heron chicks are growing – almost the same size as their parents. The nests are crowded and noisy, as the “teens” strut their stuff and test their feathers, getting ready to fledge. They’ll fly from the colony at the end of June – July, leaving a stillness in the trees. Herons live independently after that, and can often be seen flying around Seattle, and fishing by shorelines, and ponds.
Join us Saturday, June 25 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm at Commodore Park. We’ll have our telescopes set up and will be ready to answer your questions. The event is free and open to all. Invite your family and friends ad learn about Seattle’s Official City Bird!
Heron Chick Birthday Party!
1:00 – 3:00 pm
Join us at Commodore Park near the Ballard Locks Fish Ladder on the Magnolia side. We’re celebrating the birth of over 30 heron chicks! We’re serving birthday cake, and will have telescopes set up to observe the chicks and their quirky tufted hairdos. Come hear the cacophony as they chatter for food!
