Crowned


I told you it was a good night for bird pictures, but I'm not sure if you believe me yet. These shots of a black-crowned nigth heron should help convince you a wee bit. These first two shots should give you a good idea about those two long white feathers that adorn the back of their heads. I think they should be named after that, not the dark head. Trailing neck-feather birds. How's that?



Oh, all these pictures are of the same bird, except this one, obviously. This one is the same species though, just a juvenile. His adult feathers haven't come in yet, but he's almost full size.
