Black-crowned Night-heron

Surveying his realm, this single Black-crowned Night-Heron was on a small island in what was an active Little Blue Heron rookery last year. This year he seems to be the only wading bird using it.

Shortly after I took this picture he dropped down into the center of the island out of sight, presumably to a nest.
