Great Blue Heron in Yolo Wildlife Area

The Yolo Wildlife Area had been closed for several months due to heavy rain. But on this day the entrance gate was open so I decided to investigate. The ponds were full of water, and I was alone as I explored the terrain. The red-winged blackbirds were out in force, and I saw a number of cinnamon teal.

Then I spotted this great blue heron up ahead. I said to myself,   “He’ll fly before I’m ready to snap a picture; they always do!”. But he was holding still, and as I inched closer I got him in my sights. I took several photos of the great blue heron, and he never did fly!
