Caption: The Night Heron is the most widely distributed heron in the world. This juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron was photographed early one recent morning in one of the ponds at Pea Island Refuge. As their name implies, Night Herons feed mainly at dusk and nighttime, in shallow water at the edge of ponds, streams and other watery locations.
