We had a Night Heron's nest in our neighborhood and there were 3 chicks. Something must have happened to the Mom and she left all 3 behind. This one spent a couple days on our neighbors roof before heading off. I had a chance to practice a few shots with my new camera. Looking forward to getting it out in the field.
Happy Wing Wednesday!

Glanced outside my den window and found this lovely Flicker hanging around the water fountain. Several birds have sought refuge from the withering heat at the fountain today. Fanning their wings and hilariously splashing water all over the place, they've kept me quite entertained.
