As a follow-up, for this section of the creek, it would almost certainly be
better and safer to try parking on Piermont Ave., on the north side of the
creek, and then looking down into the stream from there. That is a one-way
section with much less traffic than Ferdon.

Of course the heron has most often been seen farther east where Ferdon
crosses the stream, and there are other parking options if it is that far
east along the stream.
