Black-crowned Night Heron Seen 1/17/06 Ukiah
Tues, 17 January at 8:45 AM, I saw the adult Black-crowned Night Heron
at the north junction of Pomo Dr, Yosemite & Washo Dr in the Oak Manor
area of Ukiah east of Hwy 101.
The adult bird was in the NE most tree looking north. I could not find the
juvenile. But, because of having to peer over the house in front of the
redwood trees, I did not look particularly hard for the young bird, having
seen the adult rather easily.
On my way home, I briefly looked for the Sandhill Crane on Reynolds
Hwy at mi post 2.14, but did not see it. There is a huge flooded, shallow
lake nearby where it could easily be hiding out. No turkeys were out
in the open either. This was around 11 AM, but it was pretty dark and
rainy, so I took the chance. Luckily, Jim and I saw the bird last week.
