We walked around the old golf course along the Shenandoah River Saturday to look at the progress of the Great Blue Heron rookery and the Bald Eagle nest across the river. The rookery was very active with herons constantly coming and going. They are still reinforcing the stick nests. The eagle is sitting high in its nest but we couldn't see if it had hatchlings yet. We also saw a pair of Common Mergansers out on the river.
