Blue Heron Rookery on the Kentucky River – Images by David Stephenson
I had a great time during a media preview trip to see a great blue heron rookery on the Kentucky River last week for the Herald-Leader. Shaker Village will be offering two wildlife cruises on their historic Dixie Belle paddle boat this spring.
We saw dozens of nests in a handful of sycamore trees on the banks of the river about 45 minutes (by paddle boat) upriver from High Bridge. All kinds of herons were flying around or perched on the branches or nests watching over their babies.
