We Are Family
Double D and I happened upon a family of Black-crowned Night Herons. The young'uns are streaked with brown feathers and orange eyes; the adults have slate gray outer wing feathers with navy blue back and head with long white plumes, and red eyes. We discovered about a dozen of them near LSU Lakes in Baton Rouge. They were in a little pond tucked away from all the main activity. It was a nice find the third week of January.
