Black crowned night heron. Itโ€™s a close call between Black Caps and Green herons for my favorite North American bird, but this guy beats the Green Heron by a little bit.

๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ - Black-Crowned Night Heron - 6/6 (adult & juvenile)

Taken this shot at Yishun Pond in Singapore. It's so nice to see them perched on this beautiful dry "tree" decor. Haha.. Glad they made themselves comfortable there.

๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ - Black-Crowned Night Heron - 4/6

Taken this shot at Yishun Pond in Singapore. I began to follow the Night Heron, and manged to find where it has perched. I though it was going to swallow, but ended up losing it by accidentally dropped back to the pond. The last few shots were quite funny, because it looks pissed. Hahah.. Camera: D5600

๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ - Black-Crowned Night Heron - 3/6

Taken this shot at Yishun Pond in Singapore. My most proud shot! The wait is over! Finally, it caught a beautiful gold fish. Not sure what fish is that though. Very quickly the Heron flew away with the fish and perched on a tree. But to those fish lover out there, don't be sad, the Heron didn't eat it. In fact it dropped the fish back to the pond. I guess it was too big for the Heron? Or maybe hes not hungry.

๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ - Black-Crowned Night Heron - 2/6

Taken this shot at Yishun Pond in Singapore. Black-Crowned Night Heron is known to be active at night and less active in the day. But I was glad to see some action from this Night Heron in the day, as he was in a "Fishing" mode position!

๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ - Black-Crowned Night Heron - 1/6

Taken this shot at Yishun Pond in Singapore. Black-Crowned Night Heron, also known as Black-Capped Night Heron, is a medium-size Heron which can grow up to about 58 to 65cm long! They look quite cute like this, somehow remind me of Penguin. Haha..

"oh yes!" I hear you say "Dylan is posting more #bird pictures!"
I know, I know, I've been missing them too.
.
This is a new species for me: a juvenile #blackcappednightheron. Almost didn't catch him. I mean, look at that camouflage. โžก๏ธ Is a closer view.
.
They seem to have gone a little overboard with the name on this one. They also could have called it the "extremely-still-heron." Only the wind moving everything else around it let me see it at all.
.
Love being back here in the #wetlands of #alberta.

Not many animals voluntarily hang around the zoo. But the Black crowned night heron (Nycticorax nycticorax) at the #detroitzoo is an exception. These guys are usually coastal birds, but for some unknown (probably people related) reason there is a wild colony at the zoo. Thatโ€™s not the only odd behavior, while most birds feed during the day, this heron has adapted to feed at night to avoid competition! This sort of behavior is called a realized niche. .

In other fun news, the last two posts have been contributed by a husband and wife duo, what a talented pair! @mkscales .

The black-crowned night heron (Nycticorax nycticorax), or black-capped night heron, commonly shortened to just night heron in Eurasia, is a medium-sized heron found throughout a large part of the world, except in the coldest regions and Australasia (where it is replaced by the closely related rufous night heron, with which it has hybridized in the area of contact).
