Sunset Beach Bird Watching: While Grilling By the Lagoon, We Notice We Have Company

Sunset Village is a lovely quiet spot for enjoying close encounters with some pretty fabulous birds!  Yesterday, while relaxing by the grill as our steaks sizzled over the coals, we noticed a visitor - A Great Blue Heron flew down and landed just about ten yards further along the bank from we stood.  All we had in the way of camera equipment was an iPhone, so he was a lot easier to see in person than he is in our snapshots - but zoomed in, you can see him fairly well below.

He stood there for about ten minutes, looking around.  We tried to get a little closer for a better photo, but at a certain point, he began backing away from us.  So this is as good as it gets, until you visit this lovely place to do some of your own relaxing by the grill.
