It’s always a treat to spot a Great Blue Heron, and even better to get a decent picture. I spotted this one just upstream from the Lake Natoma Crossing in July 2014. According to my Peterson Field Guide to Birds, at 4 feet tall these graceful waders are the second largest long-legged bird in the West (after the Sandhill Crane).
