A Rare Visitor: A Striated Heron

Margaret's Classic Posts

These unusual birds seem to be loners. Once in a while, I see a Striated Heron inside our local swimming baths. They seem to shun company, for I’m yet to spot one anywhere near another bird of any description. Although they lack the strikingly graceful form of some of the other water birds of the Georges River, they nevertheless manage to catch my eye.

    Such a variety of herons. We only have one here, and a white egret.

      We have a couple of types of egrets locally. They are such beautiful birds! The other heron species we have is the White-faced Heron, and it’s tall and very elegant. Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Are they alone because they are so focused and busy? Workabolics of the bird world, perhaps Great picture

      They are sometimes focused on getting food, but they seem to be very wary, and spend a lot of time just looking around. Thanks for compliment re picture 🙂

    This is such a beautiful bird… great capture… capture seems not the right word, though… Let´s say great photograph -of a free bird- instead… sending love, dear Margaret. Aquileana 🙂
