Little Blue Heron adult continues at Ballona Lagoon Marine Preserve - Day 4
- Greetings Birders:
The Little Blue Heron is back in Ballona Lagoon Marine Preserve again this morning by 5:45 am. This is Day #4, and if it behaves as the other three days, it will remain in this small part of Ballona Lagoon.
To find the bird,take 405 Freeway to the 90 Freeway-west, to Lincoln BLvd-turn right, then go to Washington-turn left, then to Pacific Avenue-turn left, and go to the end of street, it curves sharply to left, and parking meters- are there (1 quarter for 30 minutes), and walk less than 100 yards from the meters on the Lagoon's good walk path. It's in the shallow water feeding constantly.
At dusk, the LB Heron flies to the Marina del Rey Yacht Harbor and roosts in a pine or eucalyptus amongts 45-65 egrets (Snowy and Great). I can't disclose this location as it is private parking lot of apartments with the trees.
