Sky Watch Friday #35

Nothing but blue skies over Bolsa Chica. It was hard to miss these huge herons flying in the sky and landing in these trees near their nests. If you'd like to see more of Bolsa Chica Wetlands there are more photos below this post. Have a wonderful weekend! I think I'll be heading back to Bolsa Chica in the morning.

Hello "neighbor"! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm so glad you did.

I've never heard of Bolsa Chica. It looks amazing. Great idea for a weekend get-away.

Jayne said...

We are so used to seeing them on the water's edge most of the time, that it always makes me almost laugh to see them up in trees nesting! Great shots!

Impressive pictures!
Great series! :)

Mary said...

Wonderful! Your heron photos are a lot better than mine! I wish I could get that close.

Judy said...

I have seen herons mostly near water, and sometimes flying. I have seen one land on a house, for a rest (they are not very good flyers!), but I have never seen them in trees! That is so funny!!
