Great Blue Heron

I watched this Great Blue Heron fishing in the shallows at the NE end of the large pond at Spring Canyon a few mornings ago.  In this photo series he was unsuccessful, but I watched him catch three small fish that morning.  His success drew a crowd- by the time I left the canyon two other GBHE were fishing close by and the coots and grebes and Greater Yellowlegs were foraging along behind them in the stirred up muck.
