The night herons are medium-sized herons in the genera Nycticorax, Nyctanassa, and Gorsachius. The genus name Nycticorax derives from the Greek for “night raven” and refers to the largely nocturnal feeding habits of this group of birds, and the croaking crow-like call of the best known species, the Black-crowned Night Heron.

High quality photo taken against the blurred BG, great sharpness and details. I guess this bird is looking for something eatable

Looking a little startled but a superbly posed of this rather handsome bird. Lovely plummage detail, thinking he's giving you the eye there and this really great all the way out to 180mm, the sharpness is impressive against the background. Interesting in a nature sense of an amazing bird. Fine shot, TFS
