This summer we have seen more Black Crowned Night Herons than any others in the Heron family. Walking around a wetlands/swamp has its merits and interests, but coming across Herons is one of the big attractions.
Like all Herons they can be found low in the water, in the weeds, on overhangs and high up in the canopy. In this case the bird chose a rock just off the shore that is frequented by Canada Geese and Mallards. I caught him preening and cleaning up.
Nothing special about the technique here, all you need is a long enough lens, 200mm or more as well as a high shutter speed.
