In one of our favorite destinations, Texas’ Brazos Bend State Park, spring is when a number of bird species nest, brood, and raise their chicks. One of our favorite birds is the handsome Yellow-crowned Night-Heron, with striking colors and intriguing behavior. (By the way, their feet are not green.) 🙂
However, the chicks are less handsome, and this one looks like the original “Angry Bird.”
We used the Sony Alpha 700 camera, with a Tamron 300mm f/2.8 and Tamron 2x teleconverter, on a Manfrotto tripod.
