Haiga – June 1st … prompt regional bird.

I love these guys … and the same ones come year after year to Forest Park in St Louis, MO in late spring time or early summer. This is a Yellow Crested Night Heron. We have another that I call a “fatboy” simply because he is so plump looking … I think that he is called a Black Crested Night Heron. This one is more exotic looking.

south wind – heron’s muddy catch

  1. Beautiful bird, such colors on its head and wings! The herons over here come only in pure white. They are such graceful things, walking on stilts, skillfully spearing their sharp beaks into the water for fresh catch — like a warrior with a spear. πŸ™‚
