At about 8:20PM this evening, while listening and watching birds outside with my brother (and trying to key out a distant Warbler song), we saw a low flying adult BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON going north to south heading directly towards Silverton Reservoir about 1/2 mile away. The short legs, rounded wings, and pearl gray color were clear as we had the evening sun to our backs. I estimate it was about 200-300' high.
About 5 minutes later, a second individual flew by at the same height and in the same flight path towards the reservoir.
