Look who I found fishing at Lake Katherine!!! It’s my first Black Crowned Night Heron.
Here is an interesting note: Night herons are just like other herons except they feed at night. I took this picture at 5:30PM, so I guess he was having breakfast!
He was very polite and allowed me to watch him up close. I was surprised! He caught 3 small fish and swallowed them whole which left a large lump in his throat for a few seconds. It was fascinating to see.
Isn’t he handsome? Do you see that white line on his back? That is a really long feather attached to his head. So beautiful, it reminds me of hair.
OK, maybe this isn’t the most appealing photo…poor Mr. Night Heron…..you look like a rubber chicken! I still like you though, especially your red eye!
The Heron photos were fantastic! Also – love the new site! I will update you on all my blogs.
Stunning Heron and love your new site! BRAVO!

Monarch: I couldn’t believe how close he was allowing me to get! Thanks for nice comment about the new site…I really appreciate it!
Drowsey: Thank you so much! Doesn’t he look like a chicken! lol.
These birds are so strange looking to me, but I do love them. 🙂
I love this new site! Brilliant concept. And the photos of the heron are magnificent.
