The yellow-crowned night heron is a rare visitor to Ontario. A juvenile yellow-crowned night heron was initially spotted at Colonel Samuel Smith Park on or about August 17th. Word spread. I’ve been told birders from Point Pelee have made the trek to see the bird. Today I met a chap who journeyed from London, Ontario.
My story, Reader’s Digest style: Three trips, including one sunrise…
Today I finally photographed the juvenile yellow-crowned night heron!
If you have a Facebook account, a fellow birder posted a video clip of this morning’s sighting at PRBY Apparel.
We also had opportunity to photograph a juvenile and an adult black-crowned night heron.
Without exaggeration, during the three visits I met wonderful, genteel, generous and inclusive experienced birdwatchers and photographers.
