Black-crowned night-heron #1
This medium-sized, stocky heron is the most widespread heron in the world but most of us rarely see any because they are most active from dusk through dawn. Their range includes five continents, excluding Australia and Antarctica.
Black-crowned night-heron #2
Like their cousin the great blue heron, they forage in shallow waters, feeding on crustaceans, fish, amphibians, insects. and small rodents.
