In the vast pond system, which is fenced off from the public, saw numerous Green Herons. From my experience, a birder is fortunate to see just one of these little beauties. And to see one sitting on bobbed wire is a most unusual sight. Close to the ponds was a Great Blue Heron Rookery in an old Cottonwood tree. Create a habitat and the birds will find it, and they will breed.
This was my second visit to Tres Rios and I was not disappointed.

About a mile up the road, the creek is accessible. The water was bank to bank as the high tide and recent rains had filled it. There were Cinnamon and Green-winged Teal, Northern Shoveler, Bufflehead and American Wigeon. The thrill of the moment was watching a Green Heron fly by.
