    what a wonderful capture, Umang! You were lucky to photo three at one time.. you said these were night herons. Is that because they usually come out at night, or their coloring or what? ~Barb

  • Thanks.
    The scientific name, Nycticorax, means “night raven”, and refers to this species’ nocturnal habits and harsh crow-like call.
