The season's first BLACK CROWNED NIGHT HERON - a juvenile-appeared in a usual spot, the
Prospect islands. Today it was Three Sisters Islands, the hunky heron in the blooming Red Maple tree with the duck box on the western island.

At first glance from across the lake by the Well Drive, I was saying to myself looking at the bird thru branches what the heck is a Red tailed Hawk perched so low over the water.It wasn't until I was at the south shoreline , after a few moments trying to find the bird that I realized it was a juvenile Night Heron. About a few moments later, a GREAT BLUE HERON took off from Duck Island for the Peninsula, two herons in a single day since last late fall.
