Monterey County says it is home to 489 bird species, the most in the country. I’ve only managed to capture on film about 20 percent of the species total. But yesterday I added a new one for me: the Black-Crowned Night Heron. I took this shot from the top of a cliff overlooking the ocean.

I checked the bird guides on this one, since the black on the bird’s head looks dark blue-gray to me. But various sites dedicated to this heron all looked like the one I photographed.
