In other news, we spent a rainy (but thrilling!) Saturday at Jamaica Bay a few weekends ago. We saw our first Yellow-Crowned Night Heron in the blind at John's Pond. The Black-Crowned Night Heron was there also in full-on mating mode, and there were two juveniles but we're not sure who they belonged to.
Canadian Geese were roosting on the eastern shore of the West Pond. Their mates were aggressively protecting their young, marching up and hissing at us as we passed.
At our next trip we'll see the fruit of all his efforts I'm sure. The babies are-a-hatching!
