Wild Bird Wednesday: Striated Heron

I love it when I go somewhere to photograph landscapes and happen upon some bird lifers. This particular day, I went to my favourite area of Moreton Bay - Wellington Point. While walking along the jetty I saw a bird on the rocks. I attached my zoom lens to my camera and started snapping away!

Great photos of the Heron. The ones I usually see are very quick to take off.

Great find of the Heron and stunning photography.

These are gorgeous! This is the first time I've seen this heron. It looks a lot like our Green Heron, but with different colors! The blue water makes a beautiful background!

isn't it a treat Liz to spot a new bird somewhere on your travels. I especially like that last photograph; well done

What a beauty!

I don't think I've ever seen that heron, Liz. He doesn't look very happy - I wonder if that's his every day look! (I work with someone like that! :O)

You really captured that heron's eyes. Looks somewhat like our Green Heron on steroids!
