We live a walk from Beacon Hill Park, which hosts the sights, sounds and smells of a Great Blue Heron rookery every year. It means we get to watch the nest building, the courtship, the young fledging and leaving the nest for the first time, and to come across moult feathers and Bald Eagle predation. There was a young bird a number of years back who was kept alive through the ministrations of a local seniors apartment building. They named him Henry and he became adept at snagging handouts. We also live a walk from the ocean and will often see the same birds fishing there.
