Oh baby!

I wanted to get photos of those fledgling egrets in the tree at Cross Creek here in Malibu. Instead of the white birds we've been seeing all summer, though, this little guy peered out from the foliage. Bill Schmoker, a photog and bird blogger who has helped with several IDs in the past, came through again. It's a juvenile black-crowned night-heron, he said. Probably able to fly but, quite likely, still getting food and care from its parents. These are nocturnal birds (thus the name) who sometimes feed during the day. Seems the herons and the egrets may be sharing this very busy tree. A time share rookery. Who knew? a better look at the mystery baby
baby bird butt. but what bird?
