Berkeley may be urban, but its city dwellers continue to be fascinated by the wild creatures that live in the region’s parks and backyards. For a few weeks, Berkeleyside has been running photos of a family of great horned owls nesting along the trail in Claremont Canyon. Lee Aurich captured some amazing images of the mama owl feeding its chick. And on Friday, Gisele Frazão Teixeira took photos of a blue heron on the hunt for lunch.
Citizen reporter Gisele Frazão Teixeira shot these photos yesterday at the Berkeley Marina of a Blue Heron spying, catching, and flying away with its prey. Never let it be said that Berkeley isn’t a wildlife enthusiast’s nirvana.
