March 22, 2013: Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Heron, 3/22/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)

A Great Blue Heron has been observed at the Park since the 19th, usually near the weir between Ponds M and N (south wetland complex).  With cold nighttime temperatures causing ice to form over open waters makes it hard for the bird to find places to feed.  This photograph shows the heron taking flight from the mudflat at the SW corner of the south lake.
