Bird Pic Of The Week

Black-crowned Night Heron (`Auku`U)

(Nycticorax nycticorax)

Where: Oahu, HI • Kuhuku Aquiculture Farms

Notes: Some locations provide better opportunities for photography than others. These are usually places with both ease of access and relative closeness to abundant wildlife. Sunlight direction is also a consideration, but this is often overcome by moving to a different location within the given area. One reason this combination becomes fruitful to photographer is that the resident birds are somewhat more tollerant to the presence of people. When I first saw the satalite maps of the grid-like ponds at Kuhuku, I knew there would be birds there. With the permission of a local worker to enter the area, I was in heaven. There were Hawaiian Ducks, Common Moorhens, Wandering Tattlers and Black-necked Stilts, plus a handful of other species we had hopes of finding. If the sun was in my face, I could carefully circle around the small ponds to obtain better natural lighting from the other side. This shot supriseingly appeared almost directly beside me, as I stalked toward another heron on the adjacent bank farther up ahead. To my left, this bird slowly raised its head above the reeds. I inched my camera's view finder over my eye and squeezed of three or four of these portriat type shots.
