Connecting people with nature in Ontario's Mississippi Valley

Green heron calling from tree-top in Almonte garden near Mississippi River

MVFN Nature Notebook Sighting

“A “strange” sound alerted me to a bird sitting high up atop a locust tree in our garden a few blocks from the Mississippi River. It took examination of these photos to identify the bird as a green heron. And a search of sounds documented for this bird, revealed that what I probably heard was the bird calling for a mate.”
