Yellow-crowned Night-heron (juvenile)


The picture of this Yellow-crowned Night-heron (juvenile) was taken at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge.The juvenile Yellow-crowned Night-heron gradually acquires adult plumage over 2 years, losing spotting and streaking and gradually acquiring face and body plumage of adult.
This picture was taken with the CANON EOS7D with the CANON 100-400mm lens at the south side of the East Pond. I really enjoy the effect of having a white background that really silhouettes the bird. The interesting shadow was an added bonus,
