So I decided to drive south to an Audubon site called the Venice Rookery. This is a small island in the middle of a very small lake. Since it is protected from predators, a number of birds use it as a place to build nests. It is still early in the nesting season, but there were several great blue herons there. I will go back in a few weeks when perhaps there will be more birds.
