Rufescent Tiger Heron - Achiote, Panama
I spooked this immature heron while walking up to an almost dry creek bed. In all honesty, we spooked each other as he was tucked down in a small ravine three feet deep and hidden away. The heron flew into a tree 20 yards away and gave me the full review as he tried to hide in the leaves. The small ponds left in the creek has plenty of fish which made hunting relatively easy for this young bird.
