Black-crowned Night Heron's feed from dusk to early morning, resting during the day. This one was obsered near the busiest section of Farmington Bay WMA. A few night herons occasionally spend the winter as far north as New England, but most of the birds which breed in the northern States migrate south in the fall to join the resident heron population of the south, where they can lead an indolent life of luxurious ease, grow fat, and prepare for the next breeding season.

Frosty Long-eared Owl
We observed this Barn Owl a couple of years ago, but it's worth sharing again.
