Just when I was beginning to think I wouldn't see one of these small Herons at all this year, a friend and I found two juveniles perched on the shore of the fishing pond at the Forestry Farm Park last week.
This is the 225th species I have seen in Saskatchewan this year. I hope there are still a few more to add before 2008 is over :-)
I had to be very careful not to spook this one as they can be quite flighty. He was on the corner of the pond, so I hid behind some bushes from a fair distance away :
