Black-crowned Night Heron, A Hidden Nest

Black-crowned Night Heron, A Hidden Nest

This was taken at an abandon rookery. The smaller wading birds have not nested here for around two years.  In years past this spot was bedlam.

Looking over the swamp I spotted this Night Heron just in time, as he slowed to land inside the thick trees.

Night Herons are fast so at the time I had no expectations of these being any good.

Above, as he pulled back to slow down, I could  hear another one calling out.

Right before this bird disappeared I could see the shape of another hidden in the branches.

I still am not convinced the changing water and dry land will bring back the nests. But this is a good start.
