Here are four photos from the morning. My thanks as always to my wife DJ for her help in identifying the birds. Disclaimer: I am first a photographer, and second a birder. No guarantees that I have correctly identified all birds on this website, but gosh, I (we) try hard!
Great Egret which swooped down on the marsh about 8:30 am. As always, tough to capture on the fly and get in focus, but this one was the best of the lot. Canon 6D with Sigma 150-600 mm C series, ISO 125, 600 mm, f 8.0, 1/640.
Little Blue Heron, shortly after 8 am. The vegetation in the wetlands is outstanding, and makes for great backgrounds.
A Green Heron walking along the edge of the reeds. Appears to be a juvenile. Looks like he belongs in a Disney/Pixar feature.
"Audubon's" Yellow-rumped Warbler, shot shortly before 9 am at considerable distance. Lots to see in the wetlands, but much of it is not really close. Bring your binoculars and long lenses.
