Black-crowned Night-Heron

As I made my way around a tree Saturday morning, low and behold I saw this fellow just hanging out on a limb. I took several photos and then whoosh! …he flew away. I believe he is a Black-crowned Night-Heron. He appeared to have a friend on the other side of the lake. I will be watching for them on my next visit.

Does anyone know if all herons are able to extend their necks out to an incredible length? I just don’t see it happening with this guy. However, my fuzzy photo aimed across the lake did show the other bird with an incredibly long neck. It just fascinates me. πŸ™‚

    Excellent shot Lisa❣️

    Love the Rohn quote and I’m a work in progress on replacing frustration with fascination – it makes the situation much more manageable πŸ˜‰πŸ€ͺ
