Cool Bird

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.

Neat shot. These birds are so patient when they are on the hunt.
