A sign of what's to come, soon enough Sea Island's intertidal zone will be full of these majestic birds. As the days become shorter and the winter creeps its way down the rugged west coast of North America, a curtain of migration will begin to appear. Great Blue Herons are the first to grace us with their presence, I've likened their style of flight to that of Pterodactyl, which requires a slow awkward meandering through the air, almost as if the entire species has just fledged and is taking to the air for a first flight. Protected by international migratory species treaties, I hope to continue to see these birds making annual journeys year after year.
