Watching the sky for a return of the full adults. A humorous evening when this first year Yellow Crowned Night Heron walked over to the end of the the shoreline and then within about five feet of me. Of course I'm sitting on the ground behind the tripod mounted rig so I slowly dragged myself and the rig backwards, back to MFD. This was its second approach after an adult had spooked it, then a second adult came and chased off the first one.
