Great Blue Heron 2017

Great Blue Heron are so majestic.  I see this elegant creature in various locations around the city.    I have observed them around San Diego Bay at Shelter Island, Bessemer Path and Spanish Landing.

If you decide to take a walk along Bessemer Path you will notice they have nests in the pine trees at the far end of the path.  At times you can spot several in the tree at the same time.

The great blue heron frequent the San Diego River in Mission Valley and can be most often found in the estuary.
