- Apr 15, 2014Hi all, I'm a first time poster and have only lived in LA since March…
Was laying down on the dew coated grass in Echo Park watching the eclipse
with my boyfriend; we were lamenting over the fact that we haven't seen any
Black-crowned Night herons since we've moved here from Oakland (arguably
our favorite bird for a variety of reasons I'm sure I don't need to go into
on this forum). Minutes later the moon was blood red and wouldn't you know
it, we heard a squawk, looked up, and saw 2 Nycticorax nycticorax flying
low right over our bodies!
We stood up directly afterward, like, "no way that really happened!" We
started walking home, passed by where the birds in question landed on the
north side of the lake, and yep, confirmed! 2 BCNH's. I've never seen them
at Echo Park, but then I've lived here less than a month, so big whoop
right? Still, it was one of the coolest, most serendipitous bird related
interactions I've ever had!
Happy trails, bird on my friends, and thanks for reading….
