Not Expecting That
It was a bright, clear afternoon today but extremely cold and windy so not many birds were out there fighting the gusts.
When I first saw this great blue heron nestled down in among the reeds in the salt marsh, I assumed he was trying to stay out of the wind. But suddenly he jumped up and took flight across the marsh. I guess he was still looking for a nicer, warmer spot to settle in and hopefully hide from the stiff ocean breeze.
