Disrupted from his hunting spot this Black-crowned Night-heron took a flight out over the pond.
This was about a half hour after sunrise, with a golden glow on the heron and the pond.
He opted to land in the “spoonie” tree, so named by photographers because the Roseate Spoonbills like to congregate there.
On this morning a single Anhinga was defending his spot.
