Everywhere a bird

Shanghai, China
May 2012

It doesn't matter where I go, I'll always find a way to bring a bird photo home (like here and here.) I don't even know what kind of bird this is, but there's something wondrously universal about staying close to the things that bring us comfort even when we're thousands of miles away from home.

Sooty Tern, perhaps?

Did you notice there aren't as many birds there? Not sure why, but I did miss birds when I was over there.

It looks remarkably like a Great Blue Heron here in western New York state. Probably not. Perhaps a cousin?

It's actually a Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax)
