Find the birdie !‏

An adult yellow crowned night heron hangs out in our backyard mangroves but I often do not even notice that it is there.  Despite rather bright plumage it blends in well with the dappled colors and patterns of the mangroves.  After an afternoon quiet time, it will be off to hunt for crabs at dusk.  It has a heavier bill than most herons, well suited for cracking crab shells.
