Welcome Back The Herons

  • Marshall Terrace Park 2740 Marshall Street Northeast Minneapolis, MN, 55418 United States (map)

Great blue herons start returning to their rookery on the Mississippi River toward the end of March. Join Park Ranger Sharon (aka Birdchick) at Marshall Terrace Park in Minneapolis as we watch them rebuild nests and do a little flirting. If we are lucky, we might see the resident peregrine falcons fly over, as well as migrating ducks like buffleheads and goldeneye.

We will be down on the banks of the Mississippi River weather permitting; prepare for some mud or ice. This event is free and open to everyone. We encourage bringing binoculars and cameras. Ranger Sharon will have her spotting scope to aid viewing the birds.

NOTE: The time of this event will be announced closer to the date. Meet Ranger Sharon at the park down on the river bank.
