This is a juvenile Black-crowned Heron that I found at a freshwater pond adjacent to Nickerson Beach. I haven’t seen many of these guys this year, whereas I’ve been lucky enough to see a multitude of juvenile Yellow-crowns. It was a treat to find and photograph this youngster. JK.
This guy looks a bit more intense than his yellow-crowned counterpart. I wouldn’t want to be a fish near him!
