You can see Black-crowned night herons in the evening, from either
parking lot. Park in a lot and walk out on the causeway at dusk.
Look into the dead tree to the north - it seems a convenient and
often-used roost. As it gets dark, the birds will pop out of the marsh
and move to their feeding grounds. Between 8:00 pm and 8:30 is ideal,
at this time of year.
