Black-crowned Night Heron juvenile tries to kill a Green Heron fledgling!
I was watching a Green Heron fledgling perched on a limb when a Black-crowned Night Heron juvenile swooped in grabbed the fledgling and flew down to the pond bellow. There the Night Heron began to tried to kill the Green Heron. The story has a happy ending the Green was able to escape to the bank of the pond!
