Let’s keep talking! #HeronTalk
NEW - Check out clips of a heron rearranging its eggs (egg laying) and the first heron chicks of 2016 (hatching) under "What to watch for and how to interpret what you see".
The heron cam provides the ultimate close-up view of one of North America’s largest urban colonies of Pacific Great Blue Herons, a species at risk.
The colony, located behind Park Board offices in Stanley Park, is home to about 100 active nests which produced 175 fledgling herons in 2015.
When the first chicks hatch in early April – watch both parents feed and protect their young from eagle and raccoon attacks. It’s the best nature show in town!
This year, a new and improved camera provides a much higher resolution view into the nests of these magnificent wild birds.
Hover over the buttons at the bottom-right of the camera to:
You won't be able to control the camera on a mobile device.
