One of the things that draw people to Morro Bay is the Blue Heron Rookery. Located within the Morro Bay State Park, the setting is a forest of eucalyptus trees that have aromatic leaves filling the air with a soothing scent.

Looking high into the branches, you can see the nests of the blue heron and many of them are flying above as to say, "hey, stay away". Many other species of birds reside in this grove of trees that is right next to the bay.

Address: Next door to the Inn at Morro Bay in the park.
Directions: on State Park Road opposite the golf course. If you go into the front parking lot of the Inn at Morro Bay, you can look almost straight up at the Blue Herons nests.
