Baylands Nature Preserve, Palo Alto , CA
I visited the Baylands Nature Preserve during the nesting season for herons and egrets, and while wandering around the nesting trees listening to the squawking of all the chicks and adults I happened to look up and see this black-crowned night heron staring down at me. I love the expression on its face!
