Back with herons again. These were seen at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge in Olympia, Washington. Herons are not rare, but they are very photogenic. The refuge has a riparian woodlands section, where there are a lot of songbirds, but it is hard to see the songbirds amongst the tall trees, much less get photos of them. So, herons it is. There was a large group of them at the refuge.
There is a one-mile trail on wood decking through the riparian woodland section. Wouldn’t you know, I visited this area the day it was sunny. Even used my air conditioner in my rv for the first time in July. The following day I took the 5.5 mile trail that goes by the ocean area and it rained on and off.
They do not allow jogging, bicycles, or dogs in the refuge, which I can understand. Would have been nice to be able to ride my bike along the 5.5 mile trail though.
