In late August, I discovered an immature Black-crowned Night Heron perching on unusual place for these species. Typically, when Night Herons hunt they usually stay close to the water so they can strike at prey, if they are not hunting, they hide somewhere in vegetation. But this Heron was too far from water to catch its prey.
My guess is that this young Heron was exploring a new and unusual perch and probably enjoyed being there.
Sometimes the Heron looked down to check what was happening in the water.
Generally, life is good!
