STOPS ALONG THE WAY

BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON

21 Comments

BCNH-2When the Black-crowned night herons first return in the spring, we usually spot them high up in the trees. If we see one at the water’s edge it usually takes flight. The one pictured here was photographed later in the season and the fishing was good. It looked up to stare at us and then continued about its business.

  9. That’s a different angle for a heron photo. Usually we see photos of them looking sideways. This angle gives them a completely different look. He has a look as if he was caught in the act. You’re so lucky to have a chance to see them up close without them flying off.
