This juvenile yellow crowned night heron has been hanging around in our pasture.
They say the juveniles will stay in the area they are raised for a good while.
We have had a lot of crawdads from all the rain and that is one thing they love to eat. You will often see these birds in the ditches hunting for bugs and crawdads.
Nature never ceases to amaze me and I truly enjoy getting to see her beauty in the wildlife that graces us with its presence from time to time.
