The Birds

A walk from home along Eureka Slough to Humboldt Bay.  It was windy, which turned out to be of help.

The end of the slough at the bay.  The patterns in the clouds are natural, the wind was changing the sky in slow motion.

The wind doesn't bother the pigeons.

But it does bother the egrets.  This one had found a good fishing hole and I watched it haul in a couple of crabs.

It got a fish, too.

I'm not that close, this at 100mm, but these don't like to be approached.  The wind is keeping it from flying for now, but not for long, and it will stay close to the ground in the wind when it does fly.  I'm trying to anticipate which way.

I got lucky as it went to my left.

Last one before it went behind bushes.  I watched as I walked off and it went back to its lucky fishing hole and I didn't bother it anymore.

That's all.  Rich
