I apologize in advance for posting bird photos yet again. It seems like I might have caught the bird bug.
I went to the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge in the South Bay yesterday and saw quite a few birds. Among them was the Great Egret that I had never had the chance to see before. It is very similar to the Snowy Egret, which I saw a bunch of as well, except that it has a full yellow beak, a larger body and black legs and feet.
Who is Don Edwards? Edwards was born in San Jose in 1915 and is a politician of the Democratic Party and former member of the House of Representative from California. The refuge was named in his honor.
