"Babysitting" a juvenile (perhaps a teenager in bird years)? I'd be sad too!! This adult was very protective of the juvenile. We saw it flushed by people who came too close (leaving the juvenile "hidden" in the mangroves, but the adult bird came back after the perceived threat passed.
I was happy to get these images, as nearly all my other images of YCNH are of them out in the open hunting sand crabs. I like the habitat and how it frames the birds. Thanks for the commentary.
