Yellow Crowned Night Heron at Greenbury Point.

It’s been nearly three weeks since I posted anything, a record, I think. I’ve been getting out most days, quitting early in the heat, but not finding much inspirational.  I’m also trying to save money on expenses, and the car eats a lot of gas.

Today was much better, and I think we’ll have good luck for a while, as migration seems to be well under way.

I’ve never seen a YC Night Heron in MD before, and there were several other Herons as well as a Baltimore Oriole.
