The Black Crowned NIght Heron is more of a nocturnal bird, although can be found during morning hours still foraging for food (mainly fish, invertebrates, frogs, insects). It is found throughout the world. Birds in the colder regions migrate, spending their summers in the more tropical areas. Like other Herons they nest in colonies.
I have four Black Crowned Night Heron "5" Star photos. Two are in the "juvenile" plumage, two in "adult" plumage. This first one is the "juvenile" stage. I like the almost psychedelic background created by the green colored lake behind him. Also the pupil in his eye stands out clearly.
