Great Blue

GBHE-12-07-2015

I caught this classic heron pose out at San Luis Pass on Monday. The weather was clear and cool so I could not resist going out. It was pretty quiet out there all and all. Saw a pair of non-breeding Black-bellied Plovers, some Herring Gulls, a Ruddy Turnstone, and Sanderlings

I saw some Green-winged Teals at Lafitte’s Cove (life bird) along with the usual grebes, mallards and shovelers.

(Since this new WordPress editor no longer cooperates with my regular workflow practices, and I am too lazy to figure out work-arounds, I am posting all images full size. Engineers simply cannot leave well enough alone.)
