We evaluated landscape associations related to heron and egret colony site selection and the productivity of successful great blue heron (Ardea herodias) and great egret (Ardea alba) nests. The study was based on annual observations (1991–2005) at 45 colony sites known to be active within 10 km of historic tidal marshes of northern San Francisco Bay.
