Aren’t I Handsome? A White-faced Heron Struts Proudly Along…

Aren’t I handsome?

I can just image this White-faced Heron thinking well of himself. His proud, erect posture and bold gaze seem to tell a story.

These stately birds spend much of their time searching for breakfast in the shallows of the local swimming baths. Now and again they venture onto the promenade, but unlike the ducks,  do not seem to eat scraps of bread.

Impressive visitors!

    Very impressive bird and I am always amazed at how those skinny legs can support them.

    ‘Proud’ – you certainly chose the correct word there, Margaret. 🙂
