Yellow Crowned Night Herons – the babies are up

With a respite in our rainy weather from TS Andrea I walked over to the Yellow Crowned Night Heron nests where the mama’s were playing peekaboo with me. Today I found four babies who were finally able to stand and were walking around in the branches of the Black Olive tree. One of them was still hiding in the lower nest but even it’s head could be seen in the tree. The weigh of them was opening up the normally dense foliage.

While I was watching them, they were keeping a close and curious eye on me.

My favorite shot of the morning went back to the peeking images I had been getting of the mothers. This time though, it was the lower baby.
