Blue Herons, Green Herons, Tri-colored herons and Night Herons, share the marshes with the gorgeous Egrets we often associate with the shore.

We don’t easily see these beauties, but they are quietly living along the wetlands as well. Along with the gulls, terns, ibis, willets and a variety of plovers and sandpipers. The world of birds is rich at the shoreline and the migrations are fascinating. img_1976glossy-ibis-1glossy-ibis-2img_7551img_7553laughing-gullsoystercatcher-pairraven-purpleraven-soaring
