Blue Heron Nest on Roberts Pass - 2012

A Blue Heron is nesting in the marsh area, approximately .3 miles east of the Roberts Pass Trailhead.

The nest is just west of the Randy Baker Memorial Bench, up high in the trees in the distance (Approximate GPS coordinates: 39 53.252' N by 83 25.663' W).

We'll keep an eye out for the new arrivals, and post new photos as they become available. If you would like to share a photo, contact us.
