Yellow-Crowned In A Dark Swamp

Yellow-Crowned In A Dark Swamp

The Yellow-crowned Night Herons seem to favor Biedler Forest swamp. It’s part of the Four Holes Swamp. This is 16,000 acres of Cypress and Tupelo trees. It is the largest stand of these virgin trees in the world. Some are over 1,000 years old. In short it’s an old dark swamp. Very cool.

The water was very low the other day and many of the usual animals were foraging deeper in the swamp pools. I did find multiple Night Herons, and the butt of an Owl…heading away from me quickly.

This is a difficult place to photograph since the light is low. There aren’t many places like this so it’s always worth a visit once in a while.
