In the woods just off of Hwy 6, west of Houston, I discovered an area with 6 active Great Blue Heron aeries. These huge structures are between 65 and 80 feet up in dead or dying pine trees. Many of the photos are of the birds in their nests, so some shots were taken at a very steep angle from below.
