Fauna Friday

Bird babies!!
In the middle of the Clinch River, on the island near the weir dam, there is a Great Blue Heron nest we've been watching for a while.  Three babies are in it and boy are they getting big.

The standing one was giving its wings quite a workout, won't be long and it'll be airborne!

Here is a youtube video of the babies.

I tried and tried to upload the video to blogspot, then tried to embed the video here from my youtube account.... nothing is working!! Anybody else on blogspot having this issue?  I wasted so much time trying to make it happen  :-(
