herons and ospreys and owls, oh my!
The Ballston Creek Preserve has become known for its thriving Great Blue Heron rookery. But did you know that other feathered-friends can be found nesting at this preserve?
Tis the season for the return of the ‘big birds.’ Right now the rookery at the Ballston Creek Preserve has Heron, Osprey, and Great Horned Owls nesting! To see this amazing gathering of birds, simply make your way to the preserve (directions can be found on the preserve’s page) and follow the white trail all the way out to the wetland overlook. There’s even a nice seat to take a rest on as you enjoy this amazing wildlife!
Be sure to send us your pictures of these stunning birds by submitting your photos on our website. Your photo could even be featured in our newsletters, emails, and instagram!
