Eight Great Blue Herons On Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.


There was a huge flock of birds out on Nauset Marsh, part of the National Seashore,  the other day. Many were Double-Crested Cormorants with some Seagulls and Egrets mixed in.

I was so surprised when I got home and counted 8 Great Blue Herons on the far shore. I wonder what brought them all together…

I had never seen that many together before. Have you?

  1. The flocks might be gathering for migration, or maybe they’ve all spotted a BIG school of fish!

    What is that large gray shape in the marsh grass?

  2. Amazing gathering of beautiful birds! Wow…… I think that large one is a frat blue heron in flight. Spectacular sight!
    Thank you for such a great shot, Mel!
