Aha! Carrying a stick to the nest, I would think? Nicely captured! And yes, I have seen some juvenile black-crowned night herons here in Ontario, too. So I guess they nest here as well.

Thanks a lot. This photo was taken mid-Jan, which is herons' mating and nesting season. That whole tiny island alone houses tens of thousands of cormorants, herons, and egrets. As you can see from the sat image, it is surrounded by industrial zones.

I am finding out with a country's best ornithologist whether the BCNH really migrates as far as continental North America.

ตัวนี้ที่ชอบร้องตอนกลางคืน เสียงดังแขวกแขวก หรือเปล่าค่ะ

ใช่แล้วครับ จึงเป็นที่มาของชื่อ "นกแขวก" :)

ตอนแรกคิดว่านกแขวกเป็นนกฮูกซะอีกค่ะ เพราะชอบร้องตอนกลางคืน ตอนเด็กๆ รู้จักแต่นกกระจอกกับนกพิราบ:)
