Wild Bird Wednesday: Striated Heron

After shooting sunrise at Wellington Point one morning, a bird flew on to the branch of a tree I was photographing. I had only ever photographed this bird once before (on the rocks nearby one afternoon), so it was a treat to come across him/her again. Can you spot him??


Here's a closer look...

He's a beauty. A heron of some sort. I hope someone identifies it.
