New This Year

Many of our passengers come several times each year and year after year. No year is ever the same and there is always something different to see or something different happening. This year for example the roosting and nesting area for the Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets has moved. Before it was on the reserve by the hiking trails, this year it is located right next to main channel. We have been able to watch the birds nest and fledge all summer. The photo is of one of the juvenile herons landing on the marsh. Another sighting early this month was a rare fish one, although not the first time. We sighted a Mola Mola sunfish while on tour in the Elkhorn Slough. One never knows what one will see.
