Black-crowned Night Heron, Getting The Best Spot

Black-crowned Night Heron, Getting The Best Spot

Rookeries are on a first come basis. This bird looks to be first here. Things look to be a little slower in this smaller location.

When I first walked down here I didn’t see anything. However the Night Heron was watching. I would assume hoping I went right on by.

Most photographs are not taken head on with birds. Night Herons have ruby red eyes (click the image for a detailed view) so the direct shots will work.

If no others show up this bird will move on. That would be unfortunate since this place was pretty busy with nests the last few years.
