Wild night herons at Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary

Baby night heron siblings sticking together high up in tree.

This baby was looking in the pelican aviary thinking "I want to go play with them!"

Upclose of a baby night heron, only a couple of months old.

One of the parents.

Adult night heron creeping around the travel cages that the sanctuary has been collecting.
The above birds are black crowned night herons. There's a large wild group of them breeding high up in the trees over the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary. Right now every branch is full of them. I guess they come for a free handout and they know it's pretty safe from natural predators. It's funny how different the babies look from the parents. You would think they are completely different birds. Those bright red eyes are so amazing.
