You weren't at the marina in Berkeley by chance, were you? I was able to get some nice Snowy Egret and Black-crowned Night-Heron closeups there last year...right near the live bait station.
No, was at Loch Lomand Marina in San Rafael near bait shop there across the bay from Berkeley. I got also got closeups of a Black-crowned Night Heron and a Great Blue Heron. Also a pair of Black Oystercatchers that I see once in awhile at low tide. Will share more later.
Its always so cool to see details close up like that of the bill and eye. Wonderful shot!
Thanks so much. It's so gratifying once you upload a photo and see so much more than you did when you took the shot.
Wowza! What a beaut! Awesome shot!!!
wonderful closeup photo, just love the details.dan
Kimberly, Dan, Steve -- thanks so much for your kind comments. Fun to get so close!
