Ballston Creek Preserve

Hiked into the Ballston Creek Preserve in Malta, NY last Saturday. The trail was a bit muddy, but the end was well worth a bit of dirt. At the end of this wooded trail, we came upon a Great Blue Heron rookery. Along with the herons, was a nesting Great Horned Owl and two owlets. An awesome sight!

Here are some photos. Some may appear a bit blurry. The nests were quite a distance from the trail.

As a bonus, I saw what someone told me is a leopard frog. Nature sure gave him his defense with that coloring!

We'll be heading to Delaware soon to bird in the Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge. Hope to see lots of migratory birds!

Enjoy your week!
