Woodbridge Reserve--Watery Wednesday


The reserve is a wetland and it is full of bird life. Visitors are kept well away so you'll want a spotting scope or good binoculars for the best viewing.


I didn't realize that I was looking at swans until I downloaded the photos. I look forward to returning and next time I won't leave the binoculars in the car!


Woodbridge Ecological Reserve is one of several owned by California Fish and Game. If you enjoy viewing wildlife I would encourage you to visit one if ever you are in the central valley.

There's something really special about watching birds in wetlands and estuaries. Great shots - especially the one with the swan with its wings opened.

As long as you didn't get chased by any of the swans - had involved conversation with a student today about when she got chased by a swan! apparently they can be quite vicious. So glad to see a fabulous photograph taken from a suitably safe distance

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who discovers surprises when the photos are downloaded!

Interesting captures!

I am going to try to blog again regularly. I will have a post tomorrow and then we will see. I had many benches scheduled to post so that blog just keeps going. Thanks for your good thoughts.

What a beautiful and peaceful spot. I would definitely love to visit there some day.

Thanks for your very kind words on Monastery DP. It takes a special and open person to recognize the working of the Holy Spirit in your life as you described it. I pray that you continue to be open to that - there's lots more where that came from.
