Thrilled to see this single, adult Black-crowned Night-Heron, who was perched on one foot on a mostly bare tree below eight Double-crested Cormorants. He was about 12 feet above the sidewalk where I was standing with my 150-600mm Tamron lens, extended all the way out to 600mm. He was wide awake at 1:30 in the afternoon, not bothered at all by all the people who passed him by walking their dogs. Interestingly, nobody else stopped to look at him! Couldn’t wait to see him again the next day at Cattails Crossing, which is a popular neighborhood spot with a 3.75 acre pond. He was still there, but I didn’t see him after that second time. Photo taken April 22, 2021.
