Black-crowned Night-Heron

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.

  1. Nice sighting and capture, Ellen. Funny, I was trying to get a shot of one that landed on one of docks off my balcony yesterday morning. They are elusive up here!
