Nice shot. I have gotten pictures of that type of bird also. I haven't seen them very often.

Thanks. This bird seemed be posing for me. It stayed in the same spot while I took multiple pictures and was still there when I went to the other side of the pond, where I took more photos from long range.

Mostly fish. Eats small fish such as minnows, sunfishes, gizzard shad; also crayfish and other crustaceans, aquatic insects, frogs, tadpoles. Other items include grasshoppers, snakes, earthworms, snails, small rodents.
