This afternoon we had a juvenile night heron come flying in and he was in a huge hurry.
The thing that was odd was that normally we might see night herons fly from out of the swamp in early evening, and head out north across the marsh to spend the night in unknown areas.
But this guy was doing the opposite, he was flying in from the marsh and back toward the swamp in mid afternoon.
Very unusual. Was he just being a goofy kid? I don’t know.
The third photo especially, shows how pretty these birds are and how nicely they stand out from the green trees.
Much nicer than the overcast grey sky such as we had this afternoon which always makes the background go totally white.
