Black-crowned Night-Heron

Night Heron Hang Out

I’ve seen a Black-crowned Night-Heron on this stretch of bank where some trees have fallen into the pond the past few times I’ve been there. It may be the cover of the limbs that attracts them, although they are exposed to the walking path on the inside.

I was hoping he would do some fishing, but he just looked around. I did get a full side view that shows off his beautiful color scheme, and that red eye!

He eventually flew off but either he or another one returned less then ten minutes later, this time taking a position in the late afternoon sun.
