Six pairs of great blue herons are now sitting on their nests and incubating eggs in their island tree at Golden Gate Park’s Stow Lake. In April, eggs will begin to hatch in the various nests and a cacophony of squawking will be heard far and wide.
“This has been a good year for the herons. Not as good as last year, but still a good year. If all 16 chicks survive, that will be 242 chicks who learned to fly in Golden Gate Park.”
