Black-crowned Night Heron

Not only did I get great opportunities with the Warblers I shared in my last post, I felt very lucky spotting this Black-crowned Night Heron hiding on the tree branch over the water.

I’ve never had one of these herons pose so nicely for me instead of jumping/flapping away!

Some of my shots had him/her starting to droop its eyes for a nap.  Mid-day….yep….nap time!
