Notes: This is definitely the most secretive of the heron species that I've seen so far. After hiking several trails I found a little patch of water. As I moved closer, I caught a quick bit of movement and froze...something told me this could be a really good species. When I found a small window in the vegetation this beautiful Agami Heron was staring back at me!
