Default Black-crowned night heron

Got this little fellow at McNary Wildlife Refuge in SE Washington yesterday... First time I'd had an opportunity to see and photograph one, so I was pretty excited! We had just arrived, and hadn't even had time to park when we saw it... stopped in the middle of the road and snapped some pics. I shot these from the passenger seat, through the driver's side window... LOL!

Good to see your pics again - they are always worth the wait
Q- did this fella find a snack? > the intensity of the eyes is wonderful

Thanks, Phil! Been a while, I know... To answer your question, no, he didn't catch anything at that spot... flew off toward the far shore, probably in hopes of snatching a small fish or frog from the shallows there. I was just thrilled to be able to get some shots of him... been waiting for years for a decent look at this species!
