Keep Out - Night Heron


Night Heron

Immature Black Crowned Night Heron, Palo Alto Baylands. I have seen this particular species exhibit some very aggressive behavior toward other birds and each other (last year I saw one immature almost tear the head off an Egret chick...literally). I spent some amount of time trying to get this particular angle on this chick, hoping to convey a little bit of that aggression in a photo.
