Parsippany Night-Herons

Jefferson Road Pond, Parsippany is quiet of late but the Night-Herons continue sporadically. 5 Black-crowned Night-Herons and 1 Yellow-crowned Night-Heron were eBirded by Julie Buechner on August 14. They are apparently using the island and other nearby locations for roosting.
