Here’s updated pictures. Family life on the Barrancas Canal is progressing! The Night Heron young are growing nicely and quickly. They’re almost as big as mom and pop in eight weeks!
If you look closely at the second picture you’ll see two of the babies that are so well disguised by their surroundings you have to strain to see them. Below are some pictures of a relatively new-born manatee a few feet from our dock. Some were taken from our porch, but Matilda and baby did a quick disappearing act when Mrs. G tried to get close.
If you haven’t looked at my previous post, check out the video clips on it — particularly the “Gator Call” video! I also have some pictures on my humans blog. Visit http://www.dlhavlin.wordpress.com for some pics of the herons when they were a few weeks younger. And don’t forget to visit http://www.dlhavlin.com to keep up with the Geezer.
