I've walked around the reservoir probably a few hundred times and over the past year or so, there has been a sign about Blue Herons nesting. I never really thought much about it until today.
Today, I saw a Blue Heron flying around the field. OH MY GOD. It's huge. Dinosaur like. Wingspan like a suspension bridge. Crooked beak like a pelican or something. I thought, there's no way that tree's going to be able hold up that big old bird.
But it sure did.
If you live in the neighborhood and you haven't seen them -- they're on the west silverlake side -- hope you get a chance too. They're simply amazing creatures!
Note: Info on my birthday project #3 is coming soon.
