March 21st, 2014 – Avian Friday: Reddy for Takeoff

This member of the Egret family is one of my favorite birds . They seem to favor warmer climates so we don’t get a chance to see them here in the Northwest. I saw this one at Southern California’s Bolsa Chica wildlife preserve. Although the light was not ideal, I felt fortunate to get a few shots of this graceful bird.
