Immature Malayan Night Herons at NCKU

The highest number of Malayan Night Herons at NCKU that I have counted in the month of May on a single day was eight birds, three adults and five immatures.

Here in my blog, I would like to share some of my digiscoped pictures with their beautiful immatured plumage (click on the picture for the enlarged view).

Ha ha, this one is smart, actually is peeping at me.

Happy Birding.
