I wanted to share a few images of the amazing transformation of the Black-crowned Night Heron. From juvenile form to adult form, it's hard to believe they're the same bird. Wild birds, hand-held, no cropping.

Juvenile Form. Note the gorgeous orange iris.

Immature Form. Mix of juvenile and adult feathers and iris beginning to change from orange to red.

Adult Form. Complete feather transform and iris now red.

Wide-angle views.

I hope you'll enjoy these! Wild birds. Hand-held, No cropping.
