1085 Great Blue Heron & Canada Geese


Theler Wetlands
Belfair, Washington
January 4, 2014

It was a rather slow day at Theler today and I only got two keeper photos for the day. This one shows a variety of birds on the other side of the road as I was walking back on the new loop trail. Notice a male Mallard in the background and to the right a hybrid Canada goose (I think). He has been around here for a few years. Theler has made some dramatic changes recently. Some farmer’s levees have been removed and much of the land has been reverted back to marsh. It was all mud the day we were there, and I hope that is because it was low tide. A new footbridge has been erected and a loop trail established for part of the walk. We’ll have to see if it is an improvement or not in drawing birds to the area.
