Black-crowned Night Heron #4/50

I captured these beauties at the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, Indian Shores, FL. It is a pretty remarkable place if you are ever in the area. It is a non-profit, founded in 1971 by zoologist Ralph T. Heath, Jr. and is home to over 600 resident and recuperating wild birds.  The sanctuary specializes in the treatment of injured seabirds, but also cares for land birds and birds of prey.

I placed the juvenile as the first post, I couldn't resist.


  1. Wow Rachelle, great photos!!! I'm not familiar with this sanctuary, but looks like a great place to put on my list! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Fantastic shots, we have a couple of local raptor sancturays over here, after seeing these photos will have to make an active effort to go to them.
    Really nice images, look clean and sharp
