[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Note: Gece balıkçılı (Nycticorax nycticorax), balıkçılgiller (Ardeidae) familyasına ait orta boyutlarda bir balıkçıl türü.

Erişkin 64 cm büyüklüğünde ve 800 gr ağırlığındadır. Siyah bir tacı ve arkası vardır, vücudun geri kalanı beyaz veya gridir. Gözleri kırmızı ve kısa bacakları sarı renklidir. Genç kuşlar kahverengi olup beyaz ve gri beneklerler kaplıdır. Bunların kısa boyunlu ve güçlü balıkçıllardır.

Bu kuşlar çoğunlukla geceleyin suyun kenarında avını pusuya düşürmek için beklerler. Gün esnasında ağaçlar veya çalılıklarda dinlenirler. Öncelikle, küçük balıklar, kabuklular, kurbağalar, suya ait böcekler ve küçük memelileri yerler.

The breeding habitat is fresh and salt-water wetlands throughout much of the world. The subspecies N. n. hoactli breeds in North and South America from Canada as far south as Patagonia, and the nominate race N. n. nycticorax in Europe, Asia and Africa. Black-crowned Night Herons nest in colonies on platforms of sticks in a group of trees, or on the ground in protected locations such as islands or reedbeds. Three to eight eggs are laid.

This heron is migratory outside the tropical parts of its extensive range, where it is a permanent resident. The North American population winters in Mexico, the southern United States, Central America, and the West Indies, and the Old World birds winter in tropical Africa and southern Asia.

Hi Cahit,

A beautiful portrait of this Night Heron. The head thrust forward is wonderful. Amazing details of his face and brilliant orange eye. Wonderful colors and details of the plummage. Even the background is outstanding.

Cahit,

What an awesome shot this is. How did you persuade this heron to pose like this for you ? It is a fabulous catch. Pose, composition, background and lighting are just great. Awesome work. This one is off to my favs. (I keep on running into problems trying to get a nice heron shot. This one is what I'd like my shot to look like - its just perfect) TFS.

Best Regards,

Martin

merhaba Cahit bey
sanırım, genç erginlerden biri. bunların en çok kırmızı gözlerini ve tepelerindeki süs tüylerini seviyorum. sizin fotoğrafta gözler de genel görünüm de çok iyi çıkmış. netlik, renkler harika. elinize sağlık.
fotoğraflarınızı daha sık görmek isterim.
selamlar.

Just perfect!
And you have a great talent for having unobtrusive backgrounds so the birds are not "contaminated " by junk behind them.
