    Jim, I've never seen Yellow Crowned Night Heron chicks until now. I presume they nest in mangroves. Nice. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for all your nice comments. This nest was in a small tree next to the boardwalk around the large pond at Largo Central Park Nature Preserve. There's also an Osprey sitting on a nest next to the pond, but it's on a tall pole and I couldn't see into it.

    Nice capture Jim. I like the detail in the eyes.

    Thanks Frank. I was very fortunate to be at the right place at the right time, but they were all very active and you might not believe how many shots I had to take before I got one with all three of their faces. Actually, I cropped both parents out of this photo, since they were looking in opposite directions, away from my camera.
