A pair of juvenile Yellow-crowned Night-Herons had staked out one of the trunks along an old rice field dike to catch the early morning sun.
The dike is too narrow to sneak by; the one on the left flew off down the canal as I approached. This one followed soon after.

These photos are fun, Ellen. The juveniles look so awkward and gangly.
Thanks, Mike. Sort of like a teenager 😜.
Thank you, Belinda!
