Black-crowned Night-Heron

Tom Grey

  Black-crowned Night-Herons feed primarily on fish, but they will consume everything from earthworms to clams to eggs of nesting birds and refuse at landfills! Because they are high on the food chain, found throughout much of the world, and nest in colonies, Black-crowned Night-Herons can tell us a lot about the health of our environment.

Today's show was produced with support from the BirdNote Pacific Flyway Circle. Thank you, donors, for your generosity!
