Friends of Cortes Island
is pleased to announce the results of our 5th annual Great Blue Heron Count Day on August 16th, 2022!
This year a total of 7 herons were spotted around the coastline of Cortes!
We’d like to thank all of the folks who volunteered their time and spent a beautiful morning on the beach! Having support from our community in monitoring these iconic birds is extremely helpful and greatly appreciated.
