Living on the edge of a marsh there's so many shorebirds, egrets, hawks, owls etc. I loose track. Did see a momma mallard with 4 almost grown little ones in front of the house today, she started out with 6, so she did good! Last year I had a pair of humming birds nest above a wind chime on my porch, they raised up three little ones, but made the porch a little dangerous for a month or so, they are very aggressive around their nests. Every evening I get to watch the fight for roosting space between the night herons and the greater/lesser egrets. They use the same bunch of eucalyptus trees to roost in. About a half hour before dark the egrets start to gather across the slough, then a few will fly over to the Eucalyptus trees where the night herons roost during the day. The night herons start squawking and try to fight off the egrets, finally the night herons leave for their feeding and the egrets roost for the night. The next morning it's the reverse. Of course the Great Blue Herons do whatever they want!
