Environmental success story
A yellow-crowned night heron spread its wings over Spittal Pond in Smith’s yesterday.
The elegant birds, found across North America, were once abundant on Bermuda, but were wiped out with early settlement in the 1600s.
In 1976, several of the birds were reintroduced as part of an attempt to control land crab numbers, and they were breeding by 1978.
They were hand-reared before being released into the wild and now forage for food in marshy areas across the island.
