Birds at the Pond

        Yellow-crowned Night Heron
Today we visited a special place named the Joan and Scott Holt Paradise Pond Birding Center. It is the only natural fresh water wetland and pond on Mustang Island. Great little hidden gem behind a restaurant. Nice boardwalk on 2 acres with trees and a small pond. Saw White Ibis, Great Blue Herons, and a first for me-a Yellow-crowned Night Heron. It was a immature bird and seemed too busy fishing to worry about me taking his picture.
