Very nice photos. Yes, I saw three there the other day as well, all right
out in the open in the morning. Two were smaller and may have been younger
ones, along the boardwalk, while the one near the visitor center looks like
the one you have captured in your (much better than my) photos. I don't know
about the prey though - interested as well.

The Green Herons at Nisqually seem unusually abundant and visible this year.
I saw three today near the visitor center and on the Twin Barns boardwalk.
Always a joy to observe.

Anyone have an idea of what the prey is in this shot?


Here's a good example of what I've seen routinely there recently.
