The Great Quakertown Swamp
This week I FINALLY visited the Great Swamp in Upper Bucks County, Pennsylvania. I was two months too late to see the nesting activity at the rookery, which is the largest GBH rookery in Eastern Pennsylvania.
But at this pond near the rookery (I'm STILL searching myself constantly for ticks since the trail was very overgrown) I encountered two herons. One was on a heavily guano-covered low branch and the other perched on a high, thin, dead branch. He eventually took off and flew above me for a while.
