Actually most of the herons are year-round residents here in south Florida. We rarely see the larger ones (like this one) in/around the metro area, but they are common in the parks and undeveloped areas just west of town. Smaller herons (cattle egrets, snowy egrets, ibis) often hang out in residential neighborhoods, and there are some storks at a nearby housing development pond. It would not surprise me a bit to see an egret or ibis in the front yard (of course, never when I have a camera handy...)

Thanks, Tony. It's great to be able to capture these magnificent birds, we're overdue for an outing to Everglades National Park, not too terribly distant from home. We're fortunate to have easy access to two of the entrances to the Park, both the "main" entrance and this one, the Shark Valley entrance.

Love to see these birds when I am fishing. Usually there are fish nearby.

You have captured the intensity of concentration in the bird's eye very well here. It is definitely not just out for a casual stroll!

Thank you. It was hunting, for sure, on the bank of a waterway (canal, really) near the visitor center. Happily, most of the birds are well-acclimated to people in this area, so it's possible to photograph them without heroics.

Well focused and framed shot of a critter that also looks pretty focused.
