Black-crowned Night Herons at Lakeshore Park in Newark

Dave Miller

I made a quick trip out to Lakeshore Park in Newark (aka Newark Lake) at about 4:30pm to test out a 2x teleconverter with my 70-200 2.8. I was very happy to see almost a dozen Black-crowned Night Herons in the trees on the small island on the southern end of the Lake.

That island usually fills up with Herons and Snowy Egrets so it is good to see the herons starting to show up. I'm sure the egrets will follow soon.
