Black-crowned Night Heron

Ottawa, Ontario. Canada

This guy was out in the middle of the afternoon. I tried getting closer (for a frame-filling head shot and to zoom in on those red eyes) but it took off. Saw its backside and legs but no flight shot. It flew to its favourite morning area. How do I know that? Because as I was approaching that favourite area I saw it taking off as the sound of my approaching footsteps likely had spooked it (had I known it was there I would have walked slower).

other sizes: small medium original
