2 Herons

We took a walk down the street this morning to see if we could find the yellow-crowned night heron recently spotted in Col. Sam Smith Park. This bird, very rare for our area, turned out to be easy to find – we saw the birders well before we saw the bird.

I saw movement in another tree over to the right and spotted a green heron, another interesting bird which has been hanging out in the park recently.

    Nice photos. Is the yellow crowned night heron missing their right leg?

    • I looked at my other photos and a second leg is not visible in any of them. I looked at the photos Miles Hearn took the other day of what I presume is the same rare bird, and both legs are visible.

Have your say...
