Was watching a documentary on the Yellowstone River. I have visiting Yellowstone National Park on my bucket list and the learning about all the nuances that make up its eco system is fascinating to me.
Yellowstone River in Wyoming
One fact I did not know was that the Giant Blue Heron is prevalent along the Yellowstone River. It is one of the many birds that raise their offspring in a ROOKERY.
A ROOKERY is a communal nesting ground for different types of birds including the Giant Blue Heron.

A ROOKERY provides protection to infant birds. It is a lot like a great neighborhood.
The herons do not share individual nest duties but the collection of nests in a small area gives the chicks extra protection and advantages. With more adult birds in small area, predators may be spotted more quickly. Kinda of like a neighborhood watch.
Multiple adult birds in a ROOKERY may also gang up on intruders to defend the nesting area if necessary. Neighbors helping neighbors.
Nature teaches us many lessons and one is to look out for your neighbors.
