Description

This baby black-crowned night heron appeared to have fallen from a very high nest. Looking stunned and a little beat up, he was first “adopted” by an older juvenile, who steered him toward a scummy looking puddle where he drank some greenish, oil-slicked water. Then, on a 100 degree day, he set out to climb a very tall pine tree, heading back to his nest.
