We sat watching the juvenile Green Heron at breakfast in what is called the VIP restaurant overlooking the lagoon. The heron had grown quite a bit in the last few days and was quite alert and watching for its parents bringing in food. After a good stretch it started clambering about in the mangrove bush and fending off the unwanted attention of the Grackles if they came too close.
On the edge of the lagoon a juvenile Yellow-crowned Night Heron was already independent and looking for its own food.
Later we walked to the Zestos Skipper site in the forest but there was no sign of them today though there were a few other things including another Cornelius Skipper Euphyes cornelius and two Mangrove Skipper Phocides pigmalion.
