Beachcombing Birds Vacation in Bernalwood

As we all know, Bernalwood is basically a landlocked mountain. It’s great for rugged hikes and soaring vistas, but it’s not so ideal if you want to hang out on the beach. Nevertheless, our neighborhood still attracts some waterfowl tourism, as evidenced by these photos of Great Blue Heron captured by reader Phern Hunt:

These are the Great Blue Heron who visit my yard with a pond on Peralta Avenue.  This bird visits frequently! The first one is at the pond… waiting for the goldfish to surface… she has definitely scored in that department.

    Maybe those are the ones I see flying past my kitchen windows on Holly Park — a somewhat startling but wonderful sight.

    Excellent post for John James Audubon’s 226th b-day! (Uh, which I knew because of today’s Google logo.)

    Great blue herons are not just beachcombers …. they’re all over North America in every environment.

  5. “Wading birds” not waterfowl. Waterfowl are ducks, geese, and swans.

    They frequently eat small burrowing mammals (gophers, shrews, etc).

    Very cool flight photo!
