Buzzard, Heron

As if coming in on the same bus for an eight o'clock shift, a heron just swept in from the left and made a wide high circle as a buzzard coasted in low across the grass from the right. The buzzard took a supervisory position on the corner of an outbuilding; the heron immediately climbed down into a ditch and began stepping methodically down the line.

Who works the night shift?
