Herons, Egrets and Ducks in a Row

A nearby pond has recently been serving as a kind of bird sanctuary for some pretty spectacular egrets, night herons and ducks. We watch the group feed and preen and resolve disputes. They share the space admirably (there’s a lesson for us in that) and it’s easy to find yourself sitting there for quite a while. They squawk more than you might expect and there’s constant shifting of position. I am no expert, so I am not quite certain which kinds of egrets these all are, but I am pretty certain we observed a pair of black crowned night herons with at least two juveniles. The juvenile night herons are very well camouflaged but maybe you can make them out in one of these photos.
