I’m seriously low on photos; you don’t want this feature to disappear, do you? (I have about a week’s worth left.) Please send in your good ones!
Today’s batch comes from reader Bob Fritz. His captions are indented, and click on the screenshot to enlarge the photos:
Here are some bird photographs taken at Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve in Huntington Beach, California. The reserve has a mix of salt and freshwater marshes with many hiking trails, and hosts a wide variety of birds, mammals, and reptiles.Rock Pigeon (Columba livia):
The Reddish Egret (Egretta rufescens) struts and spreads its wings while hunting for fish. In the first picture the left leg is bent back, causing it to appear like a pole behind the bird.
The Black Skimmer (Rynchops niger) flies low to catch its prey, with its narrow beak gliding through the water.
