I went to the park in the early morning for a much needed walk. All of a sudden this big beautiful bird appeared and landed in front of me. It was awesome; it was so close. I stood there smiling and just admiring it. It looked right at me and didn't even get bothered at all by having its picture taken. Good morning to you too lovely birdie. ;)

That is a Black Crowned Night Heron. http://www.audu … wned-night-heron
According to Anne, I was right. It is a shore bird. But, looking at some distribution maps tells me that according to the seasons, it can be found about anywhere in the Americas.
They are sluggish in daytime and don't really become active til near nightfall. Guess that's why he sat so quietly for you to photograph him.
What a wonderful and special moment and such a good picture of the bird. He is beautiful! Thank you for sharing!
What a way to get your exercise!
Beautiful bird - nice photo -
I am always glad to see beautiful creatures.
Thank you for taking the time to let us have this pleasure also.
Nice bird. Wonder what it is. If you hadn't mentioned Arizona, I would have assumed it to be a shore bird.
It does look like one doesn't it ? :) I wonder too. Have not been able to find out. Hmmm.
Yes cybergrannie :) Can't imagine a world without birds. Thank you for taking the time to see and read !
Thank you Robyn. :) It was special as you say. That bird took all my stress away in those moments. Animals can be so comforting. :)
Thanks Anne ! Mystery solved. :)
Great information likekinds ! :) You definitely know your birds. ;) I had searched and searched but could not find any information. That's very interesting and educational to finally know where it's from and it's habits. Appreciate it, thanks !

I love it! Why are they called Catbirds? I love cats, I love birds, this SHOULD be my favourite animal!
Darling photo! Thank you for sharing this beautiful moment :)
I really don't know why they're called catbirds. I do know that they occasionally make sounds almost indistinguishable from a cat's 'meow' or more specifically 'mew'. I'm sure the one who named the catbird, took this fact into consideration.
IT TOTALLY SOUNDS LIKE A CAT!
These snowy egrets and Canadian geese seemed to be having a conference, as they were in the same place an hour later when I drove back by. The geese were letting themselves be heard while swimming back and forth in front of the egrets.
We have a few geese that stay year round, but most only stop over for a rest for a couple of weeks. Each day we have a pair that come up to our dock and stay a while. When the water is low, the egrets strut their stuff along the waters edge eating most of the summer.

Hi I live in Ontario Canada, and I have seen one of those Egrets, while fishing near the Cavendish Plant, on Lake Erie. It is such a beautiful bird! Thanks for the lovely pic.
I had an experience with swans not wanting to share a big pond with Canada geese. Both resident swans were very actively driving the geese away. And it was no contest regardless of the number of geese -- they all departed for elsewhere.
BTW: Perfectionists are upset when exposed to mention of 'CANADIAN' geese. They are CANADA geese, according to said experts.
I agree. We have thousands of them that over-winter here in NE Ohio. If I was a Canadian I'd not want to claim them either. They are really dirty awful pests. Wherever they live people don't want to walk, believe me.

How and when did you get your pet?
I found him injured in my balcony and nursed him. Now he stays with us on most days. He flies out at times but generally returns to us.
What does your pet like to do for fun?
He plucks hair out of our scalp! Ouch.
Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
His shiny green and red is so striking that it reflects a lot of light!
One of the joys of saving any wildlife is when they show their appreciation - in your case this little fellow loves to be with you. Just fabulous.
I noticed a baby bird that had just left the nest and was learning to fly. So cute!
Imagine a glass prism that breaks up light into all colors of the spectrum. Now imagine a glass prism that reflects light in only shades of blue. That is way a bluebird appears blue, but what about this little guy?
I saw this bird sitting on my flower trellis and it was like he knew I was taking his photo and he posed for me.
Late afternoon, and our feathered friends know it is feeding time. Such beautiful creatures, each one, even the common or greys. And how interesting to note which varieties appear with variations in food - bread, seed, and various fruit types.
This little darling sits atop what appears to be a light and greets each person who walks through the doors of the emergency room. All the nurses loved it! I hope they let this little one stay here, since she has been here the whole time I have been staying here in the hospital with my mom.
