An Immature Yellow-crowned Night Heron

I don’t get to photograph an Immature Yellow-crowned Night Heron very often so I spent sometime photographing a few that were being cooperative. I know I made a couple of post already on these birds (Yellow-crowned Night Heron Regurgitating Crayfish and Yellow-crowned Night Heron Eating A Crayfish) but I wanted to share this profile shot that I made.
