Black-crowned Night Heron

Black-crowned Night Herons are easy photography targets. They are least active during the day and if you don't get too close will stand for a long photography shoot.

This bird is most active at dusk when it fishes and hunts where other herons fish and hunt during the day.

This heron was photographed in a Hammond, Indiana city park. Other places in Northwest Indiana to view this lovely bird in the spring and summer are the banks of the Little Calumet River in Gary and the Kankakee Grand Marsh.
