Beautiful Bird Having Breakfast In Sista’s Herb Garden

  

Anyone know what type of bird this is?

  

 

Apparently it prefers Worms & Fresh Chive for Breakfast!

  

 

This bird has been stopping by to feed for the past week!

A nocturnal heron of the southern swamps and coasts, the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron can also be found breeding along wooded streams northward to Indiana and Illinois.

      1. This a rare breeding species in Massachusetts and would be worth documenting if there is any nesting activity in the trees in or near your yard. There was a nesting pair a couple of years ago in East Gloucester, one of very few proven records for the state.

  1. Very cool. I have never seen one either. Most of the yellow-crowned night heron’s diet is made up of crustaceans like crabs and crayfish. It sometimes eats fish, eels, mussels, frogs, tadpoles, aquatic insects, snails, and small snakes, so it is strange that it is in your garden, unless you have lots of frogs or small snakes. I would expect to see them at the water’s edge, like other herons. Maybe they do like pasta primavera and Wikipedia just doesn’t know it!
