Pond Visitor

The pond near the visitor center was drained last week. Though the ducks are probably wondering what happened to all of their real estate, this Great Blue Heron seemed to like having most of the water gone. He came and hung around for quite a while.

The light wasn't the greatest, and he was still a bit too far out for my zoom to handle well. But it was fun to have him around for a little while. They are quite interesting and beautiful birds.

Oh, there were also a couple of American Wigeons out there, along with one or two Green-winged Teal, and many Mallards.

I like the way herons always look top heavy. :)
