My 9/80 at Bolsa Chica Reserve

I am thankful for my flexible schedule at work. 9/80's mean less people on the road, less people at location, and spending every other Friday doing anything I want. With my 300mm F4 packed up, I headed back down to the Bolsa Chica reserve. Water level was lower so I walked around the reserve, rather than hanging out on the bridge. I was on the lookout for birds feeding, as well as birds I have not captured before.

Great blue heron trying to feed on a dead grebe. This thing was at it for a good 15 minutes, figuring out how to try to jam it down its throat. It kept trying, then washing it off, then trying again. I left to take other pics, but returend after and it was gone. I'm guessing it was not successful in eating it.

White-faced Ibis

Flock of willets. These things were flying in huge packs and you could hear their wings buzz as they flew by.
