[SIZE=2]Well I was out on a very windy, drizzly mothers day morning trying to get in a few pictures before the wife got up.
Found some Dickcissels singing like crazy,

But very high winds made the songbirds real scarce as a whole. Was watching a few lesser yellowlegs for a decent shot when two ladies that were out birding drove up. I Introduced myself to them and they asked what I was taking pictures of, and we exchanged a few pleasantries,(She told me the Yellow "Sparrows" I was taking picture s of were actually "Dickcissels") I thank her for that!!
Then she told me where she had seen a yellow crowned Night Heron on a small slash not to far from there and said he might be a good candidate for a picture. It was on my way out to home so I "ran by there really not expecting to see much, it was cloudy and rainey and I have never gotten a picture of one, having spent quite some time trying and hunting down "sightings"
 
Much to my surprise, I found one just waiting for me. I wish I had better light but was literally thrilled to get the shots that I did. (I was late taking my wife and daughter to breakfast for mothers day, but my wife understood when she saw why I was late!! (and she is used to it!!)
Just hanging around

Excellent presentations of the YCNH. The Dickssisel was nice to see too as we hardly ever get them in our neck of the woods. I enjoyed this.

Nice set of shots. These birds are rare here, if they ever come this far North. At least I have never seen any of them.

Thanks, I wish I had better light to play with but for this elusive bird I was very glad to get this opportunity.

I think the Bohemians are further North. We get the Cedars here, and if I'm lucky I see them once or twice a year. :)

I thought you got some of the Bohemians. We get cedars through here but I can not seem to catch them when there is enough light for decent photos.
