Bird Pic Of The Week

Black-crowned Night Heron (‘Auku’u)

(Nycticorax nycticorax)

Where: Oahu, HI • Magic Island Park

Notes: Over a year and a half ago while visiting this park, a total stranger told me there was a tall bird that ate the fish from the inner channel pond that edges this park. I figured it must have been a Night Heron, so I headed over to the water. Sure enough there was an adult bird standing at the water's edge. I took quite a few photos, but all of the shots came out blurry. User error no doubt. So on this last visit I could not turn down a chance to revisit that same spot and see if the bird was still there. Just after entering the gate to the park I could see a bird by the water, but it was a juvenile. Soon an adult flew in and chased off the young bird as if that was his turf. I pitched a few bread scraps into the water and the fish came in. Within moments the Heron plunged in and strolled out with a fish. A big fish! I watched in amazement as it somehow managed to swallow a fish bigger than his head. The heron then retreated up into a nearby tree for a nap.
