Juvenile black-crowned night heron.

The adult was a little less cooperative.

Great feather detail in the young'un! And very interesting to see how rapidly the quality of light was changing.

Oh, and our BCN herons are much like yours - bold when young, very shy when mature... (Or maybe it's just the shy ones that live to maturity??)
