White Faced Herron

This white faced herron was stalking through the mangroves next to the Botanic Gardens in town.

It had recently been photographed by another Brisbane photographer (who I suspect is another flickr regular).

Other names: Blue Crane

Scientific Name: Egretta Novahollandiae

    Well he's really a grey bird, but the sunlight was fairly bright compared to the surrounding shadow.
