Marsh Flyovers

A number of wading birds have returned to this marsh area in the last few weeks. The numbers of Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons had gone down to just one or two that were easy to see the last few times I was here.

Today a half dozen of both the Great Blues and Egrets were in and out of a canal area that is conducive to full body photos.

The reeds that make up most of the marsh are slowly sinking as winter progresses, making it a little easier to see birds approaching and where they land.
