EGRET ROOKERY - HUMBOLDT BAY, oil painting by Kathy O'Leary

This is a painting of one of my favorite views on Humboldt Bay, the Egret rookery on Indian Island. The colors of the marsh grasses and the light surrounding the island and on the water change constantly. Through the seasons, high and low tides, clear or foggy skies, its always beautiful. Several Egret and Heron species (including the Snowy Egret, and Blue Heron) nest in these trees every Spring and Summer. Its a favorite for kayakers, birders, as well as local photographers and painters. SOLD
