Black-crowned Night Heron seen on the Navarro River

Peter Baye was kayaking on the Navarro River when he saw this adult Black-crowned Night Heron.

Peter let his kayak drift towards the Heron and didn't move. As he said, it worked! Peter got a great photo. I love the reflection in the river.

Several years ago Peter photographed the juvenile below. There sure is quite a difference in coloring.

Kayaking on one of the Coast's wild rivers - sounds idyllic, doesn't it? Thanks to Peter for allowing me to share his photos with you here.

  1. Frank, the adult Heron is crouching as it looks for a tasty meal. If it was standing upright you would see its neck. The neck does look thicker than a juvenile's though.
