Black-crowned Night Heron at Spring Hammock Preserve

I drove to Spring Hammock Preserve this morning hoping to find my first Great Crested Flycatcher of the year.

I didn’t see one, but I did hear one calling. The biggest surprise, though, was this Black-crowned Night Heron.

It had flown up into the branches of a tree overhanging a stream, so my guess is that it’s going to try to nest somewhere along the stream.

I’m going to have to come back here more often now.

It would be wonderful to confirm breeding of Black-crowned Night Herons in this block.
