Down at Sand Creek again for Memorial Day. Last few times I've been down, I've seen a large gray bird that flies too fast to photograph. Yesterday, I ran into him as I crossed over the bridge. I kept hoping he'd fly, but he seemed content to stay where he was. Is this a Blue Heron? Or some kind of Crane? Somebody please advise?
