Last month we were camping along the Sacramento River, near Woodson Bridge. For most of the five days that we were there, it rained. Finally, one morning the sun came out. And so did an abundance of birds.
During that sunny morning, the sound of the river was muted by the sounds of so many birds. I even got to see my first Great Blue Heron. The instant I noticed him, I grabbed my camera and stepped out of our travel trailer to get some shots of him. One of his fine-feathered-friends must have taken exception to my plan because as soon as I cleared the trailer awning, it pooped! The mess landed on my camera. Yuck!!! Thankfully, I also had the hood on the lens when the dirty deed happened. While cleaning up my camera, the Great Blue flew away, and I thought I missed my chance for a photo.
Apparently, the Great Blue liked the area behind our rig. He showed up often whenever the sun was out, and I was able to photograph him.
