A Great Egret at MNSA

Tuesday, November 2, 2021,

I was on vacation from my regular job a week ago and finally managed to get out and take some photos. I enjoyed great weather for the most part and was out every single day. I visited several of my favorite haunts, including the Marine Nature Study Area in Oceanside, which is where I captured these two images. This is a Great Egret wading through the tall saltwater marsh grass in search of piscine delectables.  JK

Portraits of an American Robin

Thursday, November 19, 2020,

This is a Robin that I photographed at the Marine Nature Study Area in Oceanside last month. It appears to be a female in mid-molt but I really do not know for certain. It was chowing down on some Juniper berries when I found it. Apparently the berries were more interesting than  me because, other than a few glances in my direction, it pretty much ignored me. It was kinda like being back in high school.  JK
