Big Beef Creek: Great Blue Heron Launching
Great Blue Herons (and Bald Eagles) congregate during low tide to feast on Midshipman fish that come to the oyster beds to breed. So, I make a habit around the Memorial days of driving to Big Beef Creek to watch migrating bald eagles - this photo was shot in 2017.
