A Black-Crowned Night-Heron and his fishing buddy

Who doesn't love seeing a Black-crowned Night-Heron? At first glance, they look a plump seagull. But upon closer inspection, they're definitely a heron. My first sighting was back in 2014.

I captured this photo last night at around 8:00pm, so this guy was living up to his name. Looks to me like he was out for some dinner:

A few minutes later I captured this blurry photo:

You can see the heron fairly clearly, and to the left, perched on a rock, is a racoon. Definitely feeding time for our night loving friends; and time for me to get back to the car.
