YC Night-Heron in SCZ
- Hi Birders -
I didn't see this already posted.
Today, Steve Gerow found a young YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON at
Natural Bridges State Park in west Santa Cruz. It was seen along
Moore Creek near the river mouth along with a young Black-crowned
Night-Heron for comparison. The bird was seen at different times of
the day by several observers. Photos and video were taken. It was
seen up until around 7 pm this evening.
From the Delaware entrance to the park, walk in along the paved road
roughly 100-150 yards until you get to the park buildings on your
right. Turn right onto the dirt road just before the buildings.
Follow about 50-75 yards until it turns into a newly paved path which
splits. Take the right fork down to the creek. The first picnic
table you get to is where the bird was seen most often.
