MURRAY'S HERONS- Getting bigger!

Photos of the Yellow-crowned Night-Herons MURRAY HEAD  discovered on Governor's Island on July 1, 2015.

Hi Marie

As promised an update.
They are a family, The parents and two chicks.
As you can see by their wings the chicks are not ready for Prime Time.
I would give it about 2 to 3 weeks.
It is purportedly to be a first for Governors Island.
(I would love to know where the parents go for food)

Dont forget, double click on images to see the enlargements.
