I was trying to take pictures of a Kingfisher that was sitting in a tree
overhanging Tonaquint
Nature Center pond when I decided to check to see
 if any of the photos were good. When I turned back around to shoot some
pictures, I inadvertently focused on this bird that I didn't even
 realize was over there.  Carol Davis 9-21-2015

I found this little fisherman at Strawberry Reservoir just across the street from
 the ranger station.  I was walking along the defunct bird walk when I spotted
 it down the stream acting like a statue.  I don't think it ever moved as I inched
 my way down to one of the viewing docks.  It was quite a ways away so this is the
best I could do in the photo department.  I tried not to move quickly and disturb it
and it just stayed there the whole time.  Carol Davis i7-18-2010
