Yellow-crowned Night Heron : Batiquitos Lagoon 27 JUL 2020

Perhaps of local interest, I observed a new arrival adult Yellow-crowned Night Heron this morning at Batiquitos Lagoon on far side from main trail that starts at Gabiano. This is the 3rd out of the last 4 years that this species has been observed at lagoon ( date range 25 JUL to 14 OCT).  This location may become a regular stopping/dispersal point after breeding. The species appears to be doing well in northern part of county. Looking in e-bird, a few new sightings have been reported in  North County during the last few days.
