Yellow-crowned Night Heron

When I first spotted this bird he was standing on the side of a dirt road. I took the shot but the environment was bad, real bad. I covered rule # 1, take the shot. Now I could approach and get something better.

He very nicely flew away, and circled back to a branch over the creek.

For a moment he posed. First right side, then left side. his job done, off into the marsh.

Nice bird.
