Little Blue Heron - Avra Valley

John Higgins found a Little Blue Heron at the CAP Recharge Pond in Avra Valley today. I took my son after church and was pleased to find it still there, and active. Lots of other birds around too, White-tailed Kite and many Swainson's Hawks being the best.

Not the best pictures... it's a distant view through a fence.

These two were taken by holding the camera on my cell phone up to my telescope. Can you find it?

The CAP Recharge Pond is in Avra Valley, about 15 miles west of Tucson - not too far from the Desert Museum and the still-closed Avra Valley WWTP.
