Black-crowned night HERON
This HERON is most active at dusk and at night so I feel pretty lucky to have seen this one. I was actually photographing double-breasted cormorants nesting in some trees around the bay between Hamilton and Burlington, Ontario.

As you can see, it has short yellow legs. Not so easy to see in this light is the colour of its eyes: red.
