Yellow-crowned Night Heron These birds love to feed on crayfish. If you look near the bird's feet, you can see a red crayfish claw. The claw is the discarded remains of a meal. #birdsofsc #audubonsc #audubon_sc #beidlerforest #yellowcrownednightheron

My bird identification app says that this is a juvenile Yellow Crowned Night Heron. I am going to disagree and say that it is a juvenile Black Crowned Night Heron. If there are any birders in the audience, I would be pleased to hear your thoughts. Whichever bird it is, he was enjoying a nice crab for breakfast. #wildbirds #waterbird #swampbirds #marshbirds #yellowcrownednightheron #blackcrownednightheron #mtpleasantsc #sccoast #southcarolina #charleston #birdsofsc #birdsofinstagram #audubon #audubonsc #audubon_sc

He decided to show his face again tonight!!! ๐Ÿ’š

Mother Wood Duck with two youngsters. There is a third youngster but it is out of the frame on the right. I have seen Wood Ducks with as many as 12 ducklings. I hope that these three are not the only survivors of a larger clutch. Perhaps the other youngsters have already become independent. #audubon #audubonsc #audubon_sc #wildlife #wildbird #ducks #woodduck #woodducks #waterbirds #birdsofsc #birds #birdsofinstagram #southcarolina #charlestonsc #charleston #magnoliaplantationandgardens #ducklings

I was taking a picture of a fledgeling Carolina Wren. Just as I took the picture, its parent pushed into the frame to feed it. After it was fed, the fledgeling flew over and landed on my hat. I tried to gently remove my hat so that I could get a photo but the bird flew back to the wall. The second picture shows the fledgeling on the wall waiting to be fed. #carolinawren #wren #backyardbirds #statebird #babybird #southcarolina #southcarolinacoast #brookgreengardens #birdsofsc #birdsofinstagram

I returned to the place where I saw the male Cardinal feeding the fledglings and got this photograph of a fledgling. I can't be sure that it is one of the two that I saw earlier but I like to think that it is. He or she is fully independent now and visiting the bird feeder on his or her own. #huntingtonbeachstatepark #birdsofsc #birdsofinstagram #fledgling #youngbird #cardinal #backyardbirds #wildlife #wildbird #wildbirds #redbird #southcarolina #sccoast #lowcountry #pawleysisland #georgetownsc #murrellsinlet
