Heron return to the Kenmore rookery

View of the rookery from the Kenmore Park & Ride 

Driving east on 181st toward 73rd this morning it was hard to miss the fact that herons are most definitely back.  Luckily there was literally ONE parking spot left in the Kenmore P&R, so I was able to take a few pictures of the birds.  Too bad it was such a dark, gloomy day.

Taking pictures of nests and bare branches reminded me of the art by Susan Zoccola that is permanently installed in the new Kenmore city hall.  Here are a few pictures of that artwork, in case you haven't seen it for yourself.  I love how Susan was influenced by the trees and heron nests that she saw when exploring Kenmore for inspiration.  I'm afraid that my pictures don't do the artwork justice, so go see it for yourself if you can.
