The memorable, iconic Robert De Niro lines above, from the movie “Taxi Driver,” (1976,) is a fitting caption for this black-crowned night heron, the series taken a while ago by Masonicus Creek, in Winter’s Park, Mahwah, NJ.
As usual, click on the image for a closer look, and thanks for viewing. Comments are always welcome. M 🙂

Nice portrait of a Nightcrown.
Sherry: I’m not well versed on the ID of such beautiful birds, and I’ve not seen too many of these, (N.E. New Jersey,) but is “Nightcrown” it more proper name??? M 🙂
Black-crowned Night heron us the full name.
I like your alternative!
Duly corrected. Thank You. M:-)
fantastic photos , great lighting and detail on this beauty
Nice shots . . . the caption would be more fitting if it held a gun.
This looks more like “Help me Obi Wan Kenobi. You are my only hope.”
If it held a gun I wouldn’t have stayed around to photograph it! M 🙂
They’re after fish and amphibians. They don’t hunt people. You would have been perfectly safe . . . unless it was a really bad shot which — given the absence of fingers — it probably would be.
One of my favorite movies!
Wow what wonderful captures of a Night Heron!!! I have never visited that park in Mahwah- but will add it to my list!
We have many black-crowned night herons that hang around at SeaWorld and the San Diego Zoo. They get lots of free scraps there.
