Emperor of the Glade | Yellow-crowned Night Heron

Searching out rumors of light, a Night Heron
slips past evening's commotion,
ignoring the hot and confused air,
emperor of the glade.

The yellow-crowned night-heron , is one of two species of night herons found in the Americas, the other one being the black-crowned night heron. It is known as the Bihoreau Violacé in French and the Pedrete Corona Clara in Spanish.

A related heron, the Bermuda night heron, was endemic to Bermuda, but became extinct following human colonisation.
