    Frank and I got tired of waiting for the ducks to do something, so we went to get pics of that thistle again. I stopped to take a picture of something, then notices this guy moving. It was fun to shoot something besides ducks and geese.
    Ignore the green blobs. A rude plant got in my field of view.

    Comments welcome. The background stinks, but you work with what you got.

    Excellent shots Chris!! This is as I thought, a Yellow-Crowned Night Heron. The shot of the flying heron-like bird that I got earlier was probably this same species (maybe the same fellow).

    Wish I had seen him too. :cry:

  4. Thanks for sharing these images Chris. A Yellow Crowned Night Heron is not something that I have seen often.

    Thanks for the comments. I didn't like the rocks because seem to break up the outline of the bird (I have to look for the beak in the 2nd and 4th shots), and are the same color as the bird. Other than that, I was pretty pleased with them. I had never seen on of these guys before.
