STOPS ALONG THE WAY

BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON

18 Comments

This black-crowned night heron is in mating plumage, sporting two long white plumes. Both sexes look alike (at least to me) but I believe this is a male given its larger size.
He was surveying the water when I spotted him but I moved on before I saw him catch anything.
