I make a quick stop at the Veteran's park lagoon to see whether I could spot 
the yellow-crowned night heron that has been spotted.  For me, no luck, but 
fotunately, somebody spotted it Monday evening, so it is still there. 

I was there for a brief while.  There are a few Green Herons and Black-crowned 
Night Herons there that you still might enjoy. 


The Green Herons I spotted where on the opposite ends of the lagoon on the west 
side.  I enjoyed watching one eat a couple sizable fish within a few minutes.

While on the north end, I inadvertently spooked a juvenile BCNH.  It then 
proceeded to fly and land south.  I managed to then spot three juveniles.
