We tend to think of herons as long and lanky but the Black-crowned Night Heron is short and stocky.  They prefer to feed at night.

This handsome bird was building a nest when photographer and local birder, Ann Constantino, caught it with her camera. [To see more local wildlife, like her Facebook page here.]
