Here Fishy, Fishy

While kayaking, I sometimes run across Green Herons (Butorides virescens), which are always fun and interesting to watch. And they are excellent fishers.

Here are a few of my favorite images of […]

Tri-colored Birdie

I photographed a few TriColored Herons (Egretta tricolor) along the Anhinga Trail. Along the Anhinga Trail, the Tri’s were pretty tranquil, usually quietly waiting for a fish to swim within easy grasp. Here are a few images I captured in the Everglades: At one time, the Tricolored Heron was know as the Louisiana Heron. Guess […]

Fun Friday: There Goes the Neighborhood!

Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from the Venice bird rookery, located in the middle of Venice, Florida. As I photographed the nesting and roosting birds at the rookery, there constantly seemed to be some action going on at the far end of the island, so I picked up my equipment and moved down to see […]

Florida Green Herons

These Green Heron (Butorides virescens) images were made a few years ago when I was photographing in Florida. We stayed for a couple of days with some great friends of ours (Thanks, Tom and Lindsay!) who live in St. Petersburg. Not far from their house was a neat little place where we found some alligators, […]

So, today’s featured subject is the night heron. In particular, a juvenile Yellow-crowned Night Heron. While kayaking a local Missouri waterway, […]
