STOPS ALONG THE WAY

BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON

30 Comments

BCNHWe’ve seen several Black-crowned night herons this summer. They can stand motionless in the water for long periods waiting for a fish to swim by or else stalk with the best of them. This heron is the first one I have taken this year with no reeds blocking my view.

  2. ‘On the hunt,’ well captured, Belinda! I like its ‘antenna’ – almost looks like a radio tracker. 😉

  4. Herons are such a strange and fascinating family. I gather that this species uses bait for its fishing activities – very smart! https://www.jstor.org/stable/1522044?origin=crossref&seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

  5. Beautiful photograph, Belinda. You pushed the button at the right moment, just when he was lifting its left paw (correct word?), brings the photo alive.
