Wildlife, Habitat and the Wallow Fire

Great Blue Heron

Some stood around the edges of their nests watching over their young while some hunkered down digesting their morning meal. Still others continued feeding at the lake.

 
It was the last week of June of this year and I was looking at the great blue heron rookery of Luna Lake. They were still there. They survived. Despite the wildfire bearing down on their rookery, and the smoke that accompanied it; despite the fire suppression activity at their feeding ground (helicopters dipping water and heavy fire engine traffic); and despite the burn-out operations through
their rookery, they survived. And they hatched young.
 
This is a success story. A wildlife success story. But not just a wildlife success story. For it also involves proactive forest management, and a community.
