Along the waterfront…

Along the waterfront near the Coast Guard Station, there is a stand of trees that is filled with Black Crowned Night Herons and Snowy Egrets. On the ground below are their young, the ones that fell out of the nest and the ones that tried to fly and could not. They wander around picking up sticks, sparring with each other, beak dueling and sometimes go into the street! Ouch! Pacific Wildlife care has taken in a few of the weaker ones to rehabilitate and release later.

We have not forgotten about the peregrines. We are there every day watching them bring in prey for themselves and occasionally take one to the chicks on the sandspit. Without the young around, it can be dull, but we have little nuggets like these for you to keep you entertained.     ~Bob
