Black-crowned Night Heron
Here's a picture of the Black-crowned Night Heron waiting for a fish to come by. We like that way that his world blends with ours in this photo. We have better night heron photos elsewhere, but not a better story. In the evening, we went for a walk and came upon this heron again at the dam. He had a fish that was at least 6 inches long and 4 inches wide in his mouth still flopping about. We watched him for a while, and he positioned the fish and then swallowed it whole. Didn't he ever hear that your not supposed to eat anything bigger than your head?
