Immature Black-crowned Night Heron.


This picture was taken last year in early August. I was walking around one of the ponds in the botanical garden when I stumbled on this strange bird. I had never seen such a bird and yet it looked familiar to me. It was understandable that I did not recognize the night heron in its immature phase as I had never seen it with those colors. It is a totally different bird than when it is an adult. I had plenty of time to take pictures as it stay very close to the edge of the pond looking for small fish.
