Black-Crowned Night Herons of Sekinchan

5 July 2009, Sungai Besar, Sekinchan, Selangor


We went to Sekinchan specifically for the  Black-Crowned Night-Herons (Nycticorax nycticorax) and were a bit disappointed to have found only 2 birds on a  tree next to the wharf . We were ready to return to Kuala Lumpur after taking whatever photos we could when we saw a few egrets in the air. Decided to follow the birds . Lo and behold, we had stumbled upon their breeding ground. Only then did we realize that we had earlier gone to the wrong place. Sorry Yen, should have read your directions more carefully .
