I spotted him peaking out from behind some Cypress Knees and expected him to take off when he saw me.
This Black-crowned Night-Heron evidently was on a mission to check out the banks of the pond. I moved to his other side and still he just poked along allowing me to get some better shots.
I suspect he might have had fishing on his mind but he never stuck his beak in the water in the twenty minutes I watched him.
I little further down the path another Night-Heron was taking it easy, one-legged, on a branch over the pond.
