While going up the Cano Negro in a boat, I noticed we were "chasing" this Tiger Heron from perch to perch. As we approached this time, I anticipated when it would take off. Due to the comibined speeds of the bird and the boat, I only had time for one shot. The Tiger Heron is found throughout Central America and some of the Caribbean Islands.
