This Night Heron was first spotted by my wife at about 9am on 27-Jul-2013, after spotting a juvenile Night Heron roughly 1km in the north end of the park. We returned to the spot about an hour later only to find it in the same spot, perched on a tree by the Don River. Although it was a cloudy morning, over 20 shots were taken. This was the most unique pose, highlighting the blue top coat, the 2 head feathers, its long beak and orange eye.
