After some chores around home it did clear up this afternoon, so brief stroll around Reifel was in order. It was fairly quiet both people and birding wise. While watching waterfowl on some of the inner ponds,
… I managed to capture this Mallard taking off. Then along one of the inner trails,
… this Great Blue Heron was resting on the waters edge in some nice light. As both Mallards and Great Blue Herons are abundant in this area,
… it was not surprising that a few Mallards tried to sneak into the shot as well.
