Jennie, you also will be surprised when I tell you that the yellow-crowned night-heron loves to eat lightning bugs. In past years in our neighborhood park two to three YCNH would run up from the creek grabbing them out of the air. Sharon

I've often and ONLY ever observed Yellow Crowned Night Heron's fishing along waterways. So I was OVERJOYED this morning to see TWO herons in the treetop at the back of my property. It's a wooded area and they were in the top of a dead tree (which is a perching place for many a bird) and one of them flew off with a mouthful of dead branches. They're apparently nesting nearby. I'm frustrated that I didn't have my camera with me. Will I ever learn?
