A Family of Black-crowned Night-Herons
A few weeks ago I had an exciting surprise discovering a family of Black-crowned Night Herons within our community’s premises. Very exciting because they were also a new lifer for me. 🙂
Not one of the adults moved a muscle while I took a few photos. However, Junior seemed unfazed on his perch and continued to move around preening and stretching. I imagined the parents were a nervous wreck with all of Junior’s movement!
Boy, you can bet I was tickled with this photo opportunity!
I returned two evenings later about the same time to see if the family had returned. Sure enough, they had; but this time I found them perched within our marina, about 100′ from the previous evening’s water spot, just hanging out.
I checked a couple more times but haven’t seen them since. I just love that ‘right time right place’ photo op happening!
If I’m allowed, I’m extending my previous “5-Minute Bragging post.” 🙂 Revisit that post for my added “Update” if you are interested or curious. 🙂
As always, thank you for stopping by, I appreciate all your visits. 🙂
