Juvenile night heron about to land in a tree.


Thanks to Petrel41 at the Dear Kitty blog for posting this video of a juvenile black crowned night heron.

Thanks once more to Prairiebirder Charlotte for her Feathers on Friday prompt.

Thanks to the kind folks at SkyWatch Friday.

Thanks once again to Stewart Moncton for the Wild Bird Wednesday prompt.

Thanks to Ailsa for the Weekly Travel Theme: Sky.

Thanks also to Sue for the Word a Week Challenge: High. (The angle of the night heron high above me was so great that it appears headless!)

Thanks to the kind folks at NaBloPoMo for the National Blog Posting Month challenge this November.


A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.

Remember: Walk softly and carry a long lens.™
