Black-crowned Night Heron at Charles River

Here are my pictures from last night of a black-crowned night heron fishing for dinner in the Charles River. This area is a hot spot to catch wading birds since fish get caught in the current and shallow water created by the dam approaching Watertown Square.

I was really surprise at how well the heron defended its fishing territory. There was a seagull that kept encroaching on its space and the heron would turn around, climb up the wall and chase it away. It was really pretty entertaining.
