This great blue heron is gray on gray today partly because of the weather, and partly because my vantage point was through a spattered window. I did not go outside because the birds here don't like being stalked. Go figure.
The tide was nearly out, which made for good hunting and fishing grounds this morning. Great blue herons inhabit the western part of Oregon and the Columbia River's full lengh along the northern part of the state year round.
I talk about the weather here so much that I've added a weather bug to the sidebar.
