Just motoring and perambulating around the shores of the Bay you can catch sight of awkwardly elegant herons but if you’re curious about their lives and behaviors, meet up at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park this Saturday May 13 and 20 for a much better informed Heron Watch. These are the blue, not the white, herons with 6” wingspans who will be flying in and out of their nests, feeding their chicks. Local volunteers will lead you to the best vantage points. Free. A $10 naturalist-led walk will give you an even more informed view of these magnificent fowls.
