Great Blue Herons are a Blue-listed speciesin in BC and are vulnerable to disturbance by Bald Eagles and humans. Urban and rural development results in the loss of suitable nesting areas and disturbance to birds during their breeding season. Especially during the early stages of nesting, unusual events and loud noises such as mechanical chippers, chainsaws, and large trucks may cause the herons to abandon their nests.

This atlas is used by the Great Blue Heron Management Team to store and track GBHE colony/nest locations and productivity data. If you have a question regarding this application you can forward it to CMN via this web site’s Contact form or to the contacts below.
