Great day to take the kids to the beach.
I was out kayaking on Snelling lake and saw this Black-crowned Night Heron. She/he let me get within 20 feet of him/her. Supposedly nocturnal and roosts and sleeps during the day. Taken around 10:00AM.
He/she held its beak open in the water for a good 2 minutes. Waiting for breakfast to swim in?
