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.
