Green Heron

They can look a bit comical when their feathers on top of the head are tufted out.  They are  my favorite wading type bird.

Generally fairly elusive, this one sat in a tree yesterday and preened for some time before jumping down to wade in the water.

I can only hope to one day to see a Green Heron and get as nice a photo as you captured of this one.

Hi Gladys, I couldn't believe it was being so cooperative. Nice treat.

Thanks Liz. I hope your wishes come true. They are very neat birds.
