Sometimes you’ll get to see strange things in the concrete jungle…yesterday was one of those days. Due to the good washing Los Angeles received (a rare all-day storm), the “LA River” (what I fondly called the “wash” in my childhood, despite it being bone-dry 95% of the time) was actually flowing, and fast.
The other strange thing was that while I will sometimes see mallards floating in what little water covers the bottom of the channel, we saw what I will venture to guess (according to my superior Googling skills) was a Great Egret. Birders – please correct me if I am wrong. It was quite pretty, and contemplative.
“Are there any fish in there? Hmm…I wonder. It’s pretty murky. I’ll just stand here and watch for a while.”
We did the same.
