Is this egret hunting for lunchtime morsels in a Lousiana bayou? Nope. This is Irvine’s very own swamp, located at the Audubon bird sanctuary on land owned by the water district. The swampy bits are toward the back, so be sure to stroll all the way out to the furthest reaches of the sanctuary if you come for a visit. Also: summer bat walks start in July, so sign up now if you prefer flying mammals to degenerate flying dinosaurs.
