The Black-crowned Night-Herons have spread their nests around the rookery after spending a few weeks where I had spotted them last month. This may be to reduce the squabbling, which they are good at.
Getting into their nests after an outing is a challenge. They circle around the islands looking for a good landing spot.
The landing sequence is typical of the other wading birds, generally looking like they might crash.
Unlike the Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons I have been watching, moments after they land they disappear into the shrubbery, often by hopping down a branch.
Like the Great Egrets, they continue to bring sticks to the nest. Because of the nest locations we may never see chicks until they are flying.
