Saturday scenes and scenery: big birds of Golden Gate Park

The great blue herons are in the trees again this season on an island by the boathouse at Stow Lake.

Their perch is about 300 feet from the lake shore path, so it takes luck and the right light to catch a glimpse.

Given the soaking weather all week, it seems not surprising this one looks a little bedraggled. Or perhaps that's just a young heron. Any ideas?
