Yellow-crowned Night Heron and Common Yellowthroat
The Yellow-crowned Night Heron remained for about two weeks which is a typical stay for this crab eater when it finds suitable foraging. I have a lot of photos of this bird(s) but when they are gone, that's it probably for another year.
The juvenile Common Yellowthroat lingers well into November. It's one of our latest nesting warblers. There are later lingering warblers but many of them are moving through from their western nesting areas to the Atlantic coast before turning south. Warblers that don't have far to go to overwinter also linger sometimes into December, usually a fatal decision.
Yellow-crowned Night Heron
OK, Mr. Crab, give it up!
This is the second Yellow-crowned Night Heron to arrive. Unlike the earlier arrival which was a juvenile this is a first summer bird starting to sport some adult plumage.
