Many thanks to our Bodega Bay neighbors Andi and Don Stewart for these photos. Caution, they're not for the squeamish!
The Stewarts said this Great Blue Heron, who they dubbed "Piggy," comes to visit everyday and they recently watched him eat three gophers in a row. They snapped these pictures while he was dining in their side yard.
Don later said maybe a better name would be "The Gophernator"!
Sometimes it's uncomfortable to watch nature take its course like this but as my daughter likes to remind me, it's the circle of life!
