Default Herons are us!

The algae is spreading in the lagoons making the water murky and smelly. Most of the water fowls have left leaving just the Canada Geese and a few Mallards around. There are still Egrets and Herons hunting along the shore, however. The following are pictures of a Great Blue Heron, a Black-crowned Night Heron and lastly a Green Heron.

Actually, #5 is a juvenile Night Heron, not a Green Heron.

Thanks again! The reason why I think it is a Green Heron because the color of the eyes which are yellow whereas the Night Herons have red eyes.
