photographing and learning about wildlife
I found this young heron, sleeping by the shore at the Carpenter Lagoon that lies in the middle of my city Tampico,Mexico, very near from downtown. There is a great number of different species that live or overwinter in this region surrounded by lagoons, Panuco river and the sea. I tought that may be a green heron, cause I've seen an adult green heron around at the same spot and the same day, another guess its that may be a yellow crowned heron but I've never seen one around here. Hope someone can help ID this baby!
