    1. That focused attention is so admirable! I once observed a heron in a fishing spot not having any luck. It plucked a soft feather from it’s breast and used it as a lure. Within moments it had speared a fish. Smart creatures!

    1. Glad to know this elegant species has a widespread cosmopolitan range :). ‘Great Blue’ sounds descriptively impressive. The ‘greys’ with neck stretched long, attain a height of about a metre. But even more surprising is the distinguished looking ‘Goliath’ – maybe a bit ponderous in flight but what bird!

  1. Interesting – I didn’t know that their range extended that far. We have them here in the UK too but they look a little less polished. Slightly lighter in plumage.
