Shut Up Already! Sunday: Yellow Crowned Night Heron

Last Sunday we took our kid birding on a busy city overpass.  We went to the Wyman Park Drive Overpass to peer over the edge to see a rookery of these rare yellow crowned night herons.

In the middle of the city, wedged between two noisy overpasses with traffic barreling by in every direction, are these beautiful prehistoric-looking creatures quietly incubating eggs on nests precariously perched over the Jones Falls.
