PIC OF THE WEEK: 10/21/13 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2013 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Yellow-crowned Night Heron (Juvenile)

(Nyctanassa violacea)

Where: Norfolk, VA • Pleasure House Point

Notes: People always comment on how much patience it must take to do nature photography. And I can attest that, it does take a lot. But it is always well worth it, to me. Coming from a background of bird counts and life-listing, I was use to a style of viewing a species and moving on to the next bird. That experience certainly taught me a lot about different birds and their various habitats, but watching a single bird or one flock of birds for several hours provides a different, intimate experience that I had not initially expected. This alternate method of monitoring has provided a deeper understanding of the traits and character of a species and sometimes even an appreciation of an individual bird, like never before. This youngster had a favorite spot where it prefered to hunt for Fiddler Crabs that lurk along the edges of the saltmarsh grasses at low tide. This is exactly the kind of information that I learned from lengthy observation of this individual. So I sat down and waited. Sure enought it arrived at its favorite hunting grounds. Eventually it passed across just the right spot for me to grab this photo. I am truly Blessed.
