Audubon Canyon Ranch (ACR) has been monitoring the number of nesting herons and egrets at Marin Islands since 1979 and the annual reproductive success of Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons there since 1993. Nests are monitored annually, during repeated visits, from viewing positions on East Marin Island and by boat. This work is part of an ongoing, regional study of heron and egret colonies in the northern San Francisco Bay area (Kelly et al. 1993, 2006, 2007, 2008).
