I'm becoming birder . . .

I'm up with the birds because of my cats. 4:00-4:30 and if they're nice 4:50. Since I'm up I been going for a walk as the sun is coming up and birds are waking up. Robins, Cardinals, Starlings and Finches mostly. But down by the river at the bottom of my hill, if I'm quiet enough there is a Great Blue Heron hanging out. I'm obsessed with him [I'm making an assumption as usually female birds aren't as pretty]. 

I wish I had better camera to get a shot of him. But here's a crappy shot from my iPhone through the railing of the bridge. He didn't know I was there. I happen to be quiet that morning. He make funny clucking sound. Not what I expected. I've seen another neighbor looking for him on the other side of the bridge. I keep looking for his nest in the trees. Maybe next time I'll get a better shot.
