Wow! These birds are so pretty. I see them on my morning walks quite frequently!
I have 5 of these in a tree over my house. It appears there are two adults and 3 chicks. One adult keeps watch from a second perch, while the other hunts and brings food back to the main nest. Two of the light blue eggs fell on my sidewalk a while back. There is a plethora of poo on my roof. However, they are very pretty. As a non-bird watcher, it took quite a bit of research to figure out what this was.
We have two in a pecan tree in our front yard. I have not seen any chicks but they are leaving a huge mess in the street were the branch hangs over. We live in the Lake Highlands area near Walnut Hill and Audelia.
I saw one in San Antonio TX. It scare me again first bcz of flew in front of me
I saw one yellow crowned night heron by Bachman lake. It jumped on shore with a ~7-8 inch long prawn. I recorded a video of it swallowing that prawn.
