Black-crowned night-heron

In my immediate environment, along the Rivière-des-Prairies in Montréal (Canada), there are a lot of migrating birds that come to breed.

Last spring I witnessed a lot of fascinating courting dances and moves of the mallard and the wood duck.

For the first time last year I saw an adult black-crowned night-heron (see My winged neighbors), and this year I was lucky enough to see a juvenile one late afternoon as the sun was setting.

This year I was also lucky enough to see a bunch of freshly out of their shells Canada goose in mid-june, and a few weeks later a nursery of about 25-30 goslings with 4 adults – that was a lot fun!

I can’t wait to witness the courting season again next year and I intend to have my camera ready.
