    These two black-crowned night heron chicks were venturing out of their cliff-side nest on Bird Island, Point Lobos State Reserve in California.

    While adult herons have a black back and red eyes, the juveniles have yellow eyes and yellow, greenish legs.

  3. The nest is in a tough spot - there's only one small opening to photograph through. The other side is accessible and wide open - but one would be trespassing if entering.

  5. Best of intentions - we tried to "rescue" this fledgling Robin found in some tall grass one evening only to find out the next morning that it should have been left as found.
