At this spot several dikes, and a dirt road, meetup. It is home to a Great Blue, he almost always is around somewhere.

If you give him space he will hang around. The road ends here, it has a locked gate almost year round. However, back here a few people fish in the canals.

This wildlife area has many different environments. Pine stands border some open marshes. I didn’t know small Herons would like it. Big pines also mean large Hawks and Eagles. They like small Herons.
