Breeding prospect birds update

There were 3 Green Heron babies in the Lilly Pond nest on Saturday but the nest was empty on Sunday when I returned for a photo shoot. An adult came in to the nest but no heads popped up and the adult flew away. Nothing again today.
On a brighter note
The Blue-gray Gnatcatcher has a big chick. I thought it might be a cowbird at first but it has definite BG Gnatcatcher markings.
