WHITE-FACED HERON (Egretta novaehollandiae)

I believe I forgot to share this image from my 31st May walk. Whilst I didn’t have a long telephoto lens with me on this day, the focus was sharp enough with this hand-held shot to crop down, making it appear closer to where I stood on the day.

  1. What a beautiful bird. Now, I have the gray heron and white-faced sorted out. I had assumed they were different names for the same bird, but I see that’s not so. I especially like the quality of the water behind it. Lovely.

    1. I’ve been meaning to do a post on all the herons (and egrets which look somewhat similar) I’ve photographed in the past, but somehow I keep getting side-tracked and forget. I find some of the slight differences between the Australian herons and some of those found overseas quite fascinating. Some look so similar i wonder if they’ve flown ‘Down Under’ and mated with our Australian species 🙂
