Black crowned night heron
Typically a nocturnal bird, this black crowned night heron (nycticorax nycticorax) was photographed in the day at the edge of the water in Hawaii, USA. The heron is also referred to as the black capped night heron or night heron. This heron is typically found throughout the world in warmer regions. A rare and clever tool used by this heron is to toss buoyant objects into the water to interest fish to surface in closer proximity to the heron, so the heron can catch the fish. Size 8 x 11 inches printed on metal.
