Where do you go to photograph Night Herons? Charleston of course.
Yes, in the city. Actually in the park by the Battery. At the end of Charleston, on the water, Night Herons have decided to setup a rookery. Complete with pooping on the tourists (yes, I witnessed it). Dad told his little girl it was good luck, she wasn’t buying it.
This photo was taken on the grassy lawn under the big Live Oak trees, now with 4 – 5 groups of birds.
