Lake Almaden Park - Black-Crowned Night Herons Nest

Black-crowned Night Herons

Bird advocates found 13 Black-crowned night herons at Almaden Park. The birds are nesting in small oak trees and  visitors to observe the birds as they raise their young - and herons and egret are very vocal and beautiful and hilariously funny when they raise their young. Learn more about the birds at http://www.arkive.org/black-crowned-night-heron/nycticorax-nycticorax/image-G40070.html

Volunteers will be leading tours on weekends.
