Yellow Crowned Night Heron

This photo makes me again appreciate the Panasonic G8 / Leica 100-400mm combination.  This guy was quite a ways away but I was able to get a handheld shot in morning light with no problem.  And, the combination is light enough to not be a burden when on a bird watching walk.

I haven’t been seeing too many of these birds around lately.   But,  interestingly,  when I do it is usually at this one spot where a small drainage creek enters some dense woods.  That location didn’t disappoint me last week when I found one sitting on a branch on the other side of the creek.
