This adult male Black-crowned Night-Heron seemed to pose for me while perched on a branch over Butler's Pond. This wading bird has a wing-span of about 4 feet and is a treat to see in flight. (I would like to capture one of those flights.) The adult male has long white plumes that aren't visible in this pose; the plumes are used as part of their courtship behavior.
