Yellow-crowned Night-Heron

Yellow-crowned Night-Heron, Wading

I came upon a Yellow-crowned Night-Heron slowly wading at the edge of a pond. These herons tend to be skittish but this one seemed intent on his hunt, slowly and methodically advancing.

This was my first visit to this pond and it was nice that the reeds and grasses at the edge were short enough to see over. However, all the bird reflections were interrupted by the grass stubble.

A Green Heron dropped in to share the space.

Then the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron made his exit.
