I guess we didn't!

And we thought we invented co-housing...

Thank you Ank ! When you see them they are alone. But when they go home in the evening perhaps they live in apartments in the Netherlands too!!

Love that, they want to live close to each other!! Well it looks like that. It's inconceivable that herons do. I see herons always alone. Never mix together, and here, just like you say, real city dwellers!!

Thank you Lorna, Jim and Suzy!!! Obviously they like to live close to each other ... real city dwellers!!

Thanks for your note Dondi. Yes, it was great to see so many!

Stanley Park is home to one of the largest urban great blue heron (Ardea herodias fannini) colonies in North America. They have been nesting at their current location behind 2099 Beach Avenue since 2001 and have been documented nesting in various other locations in Stanley Park as far back as 1921. Today, sightings of these majestic birds in and around the park are common place.

Must be fun to watch. What kind of herons?
