Night Herons In The Open

It’s a little usual for Night Herons to be out in the open like this. Ellen and I both captured some nice photographs of these birds. Click here to view PassingByPhoto.

There is a small (very small) island in an old rice field here that the Night Herons nest in so some are always around. Just hidden a little better.

The water level was very low so food was probably easy to find right there.

The most striking thing about these birds is their ruby red eyes. Not shown to their best in this light though.
