Went to the wetlands this afternoon, I was surprised to see most of the skimmers have left
already along with most of the Terns. As fall arrives (mostly in name only) here in Southern CA,
the shorebirds and pelicans should be the next to arrive. The seasons here are almost easier to
judge by the birds arrivals and not the weather

Thanks for looking.

This Willet had a fine feast of small crabs this afternoon.

Great set Tim! I saw a bunch of the Willets on the river channel just east of Brookhurst yesterday on my bike ride. Not sure how close you can get, but there's a bunch of "pools" created by the tide that the Willets were harvesting! And between the channel and Brookhurst, there is another small "wetlands" with flocks of birds, but I mostly saw geese and ducks at that one....

The east path along that channel also leads to Talbert Regional Park, another estuary of sorts. You probably already knew all this, but just in case.....

Looks like everyone is well fed Tim!! The Heron with a Ray is pretty sweet, don't see that too often. How the heck did he eat that Wow.

Super set Tim. I am curious too about the heron swallowing the ray. How can he tell which end is the head?

That a way to make a different shot of GBH Tim! Swallowed it? Wow those guys are serious when they get a snack
Looks like little crabby is still putting up a fight!

Lovely form on the tip-toeing Snowy, that is a beauty Tim

Hi Tim,
After the GBH stabbed the ray 20 times or more the "wings" lose
all their stiffness and they slide it right down like a taco. The swallowing
images came out to soft to keep, the GBH was farther away and the atmospheric
conditions over the water were a disappointment
