Default Black-crowned Knight Heron

These were taken in the afternoon when the Herons are roosting before they go out for the evening hunt. There were about 20 Herons napping at this location. Later in the season there can be as many as 100.
This Heron was having a good stretch.

Another sleepy Heron. I can't get over their blood red eyes.

This Heron looks kind of funny besides the red eyes. Its posture resembles a hunchback. I seldom see more than two in one place in my neighborhood. Thanks for sharing the pictures!
