Description

This picture of a Black-Crowned Heron was taken in Santa Barbara on a recent vacation. I have lived in California all my life and had never been to Santa Barbara. I walked down to the piers to try and get some shots of the beach and ocean on what the locals call the “June Gloom”. It was gray almost the whole I was there. While headed back to the hotel, near a bus stop on a busy street I noticed a man with binoculars looking up at this tree. I decided to look up too. In this tree there where Snowy Egrets and Black Crowned Herons nesting. Since it was a really gray day, this seemed like the best chance I had to get some wildlife pictures. I didn’t have my tripod with me so I had to handhold all the shots I took that day.
