Yellow-crowned Night-heron

Yellow-crowned Night-heron at Nest

Luck and being aware of movement play a role in nature photography. I happened to catch this fellow moving and only when I got a little closer and peered around some limbs could I tell it was a Yellow-crowned Night-heron.

I was then surprised to see a nest, with a nice curtain of Spanish Moss on one side and leaves on the other.

There were two adults present and after a bit one of them stepped out for a photograph or two.
