Ah, yes, there is no tricking you guys. It is the feet of a Great Blue Heron.
This beauty was standing on the road at Ridgefield and many cars passed and he didn't move. There was concern that he was okay and someone after us got out to "check." Turns out he must have been okay because he flew away. Strange that we could drive within a few feet of him and he stood still for all the paparazzi.
