Continuing Yellow-crowned Night Herons

Dave Compton

4 continue at Goleta Beach, in the roost along the slough channel: 3 juvs, and 1 that looks very nearly like an adult and may be one of the three that showed up as juveniles here last fall.

Nothing else present that was more interesting than an Osprey. But it was mildly interesting to me that Snowy Egrets (22) have taken up roosting in the sickly myoporum with the night-herons. It was in the low 80s at midday at the beach, much lower than the temp just a mile or two inland.
