The subspecies N. n. hoactli breeds in North and South America from Canada as far south as northern Argentina and Chile, N. n. obscurus in southernmost South America, N. n. falklandicus in the Falkland Islands, and the nominate race N. n. nycticorax in Europe,

Hello Marius,
This is one bird that has eluded my lens so far. I have only seen a few in the wild and they were during the spring migration up at Magee Marsh.
You have captured it perfectly in a great spot isolated from any distracting elements. A top quality image by all standards. Congratulations!!

hello Marius
Une très belle composition, bien cadrée; belle position du héron sur la branche et bon arrière plan neutre.
Bon W-E
