Notes

I sat down on the hiking berm for this one, collapsed my monopod fully, and took this shot with the camera about 1 foot off the ground, supported by the collapsed monopod. These smaller herons navigate the thick mangroves well and I was thrilled to get my first shot of a Yellow-Crowned Night Heron here.

Description

This is a Yellow-Crowned Night Heron deep in the mangroves at the Pelican Island NWR, near Vero Beach, FL, January, 2019.
