Calling All Herons --- Day 12/115

Walk: Golden Gate Park: Stow Lake, deYoung Museum

Distance: 7.4 miles

Stow Lake, GG Park

So, does anyone see any Herons here?  Our Parks Department announced (or reminded birdwatchers) that this is heron nesting season at Stow Lake and the trees are full of adults nurturing their chicks.  So Ciwt trotted over for the spectacle.

But not a heron or chick in sight.  The only bird she got a good view of was this Canadian goose who marched right over to her when she was 'heron seeking' on the bench - and bit her!    

Here a parent and chick that was visible to some photographer somewhere.....
