July 17, 2007 - At Horicon Marsh, along Hwy 49, a BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON, with a catfish that I didn't think he'd be able to swallow, but he did!
(Pic 1) October 27, 2006 - While driving slowly through Horicon Marsh, on Hwy 49, I came up on this BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON just off the road, with a frog he had
just caught. after quickly stopping, I took this one picture, and looked at it on my LCD screen to see if all the camera settings were
in check. After deciding it was ok to keep shooting, I looked to find that he was well on his way deeper into the marsh.
