Oct 13, 2012: Black-crowned Night-Heron

This immature Black-crowned Night-Heron was found on Weir M/N (ponds by Stone Brooke) on Saturday, Oct 13, 2012. One was also seen on the 10th, at the north end of Pond N. [visit here for a map of the Park.] Now, if you could go to the other side of the photo and look towards the heron, you'd notice the yellow legs. The full adult plumage is not acquired till the third year. A Northern Painted Turtle is also present.
