Black crowned night heron, Rondeau Provincial Park.

Another image taken from the pontoon along Rondeau's marsh edge.
We came upon a pair of immature night herons and they posed beautifully for me.
Far too many images to chose from.

Nycticorax nycticorax
Young Black-crowned Night-Herons leave the nest at the age of 1 month but cannot fly until they are 6 weeks old. They move through the vegetation on foot, joining up in foraging flocks at night.
