Not where they've nested previously! It was on the pond NE of the end of Celtic Street. There weren't any golfers on the side of pond that I was on, so I decided to see if there were any ducks of interest around. Just some families of Mallards, and there was a kingfisher calling. I walked towards the kingfisher, and suddenly the heron leapt up, making a racket. It landed at the top of tree, and started making its way towards the back of the tree/bush area, but I couldn't follow it because the golfers were headed around to where I was. If there weren't any golfers, I would have checked the area more thoroughly, for more herons or possibly even a nest.

Hi
The Green Heron at Hastings Park was active this morning, July 14, flying to several locations across from the fishing lookout and successfully catching prey. Above, the numerous violet-green swallows were joined by two purple martin, single Vaux's swift and single black swift.
