Yellow Crowned Night Heron at Bombay Hook NWR.

It’s that time of year when birds are hard to find, and I’m not having much luck. I’ve been to several different places recently, and don’t have much to show for the effort.

I made the Bombay Hook trek again this morning, as a friend had good luck there a few days ago, but it was only a mediocre show. Still, it was better than any other place I’ve been recently.
