I couldn’t ask for better shots for comparing Black-crowned Night Herons.
The bird on top, furthest away, is a juvenile bird. He is about half way to adult plumage. First year youngsters are all brown with stripes.
The closest bird is a full adult, breeding age. Very different than the younger one.
And just to show a little more, the adult did a stretch for us.

What a unique set, excellent!
I don’t think I have ever caught two like that. 👍
I never seen the moment like this one before. It’s so great, so special!
Thanks so much. A multi generational family 😂
