These are fabulous, Tim! I captured my first one last week! But didn’t catch the white plumes!
That’s great. This one let me get pretty close to him. Thanks, Dale.
Here’s mine 😉 https://www.instagram.com/p/CgFhrRsvOJN/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
That’s a great photo. He posed really nicely for you. I see that the tassels were hidden.
Wasn’t that kind of him? I was sure I had included his flight away from me when he was done posing 🙂
Are you still travelling? How are Maya and Mr. Churchill doing?
Yes, I am traveling. They are ok. I miss them. I get pictures every day. How are your kitties? How is everyone?
Our kitties have been ornery. All of them. We are doing well. Laurie goes back to school for in-service next week and classes start on August 1st.
Perhaps is too hot for them. I am glad everyone is ok. I hope Laurie is happy 😊
She doesn’t get a long enough summer break.
It’s not long but I hope she got some rest. Please give her my best.
Such a beautiful bird.
He’s a lovely bird. It’s color pattern reminds me a a two tone car. Thanks, Jeff.
Lovely, indeed. Welcome, Tim.
Such a beautiful bird and great shot!
That is one beautiful bird!
It’s is. A two tone model. Thanks, Liz.
You’re welcome, Tim.
Gorgeous! Nice shots, Timothy.
That’s one we don’t have, thanks for sharing Timothy 🙂
You are welcome, Rudi.
Look at him pose for you!!! Beautiful shots!!! 👌
What a strong red eye-colour and attitude this bird shows!
It has a lot of birditude. Thanks, Heidi.
Beautiful images Tim.. I don’t think I have seen one of these birds before.. The normal Heron yes,, Not the black crowned one 🙂
They are not common in Europe. Thanks, Sue.
That explains it then LOL 😉 hehe 🙂
I never knew there were short little herons.. cute little guy Tim.
He’s still a big bird. Thanks, Cindy.
Maybe his position. You’re welcome.. great captures! 💖
He’s small compared to a Great Blue Heron, but large compared the many birds around hear.
oh I see.. very good to know about him.. Thanks for sharing! 💖
That is a stunning bird! Great capture, Tim. Seems to be a decent amount of water in the ditch!?
The water lelev is very low and the only reason there is any water in the ditch is because the beaver dams have not been taken out this year. Thanks, Resa.
One good thing! You did mention that the beaver dams were left in place. Thank goodness for that!
I think the fire department convinced the conservancy to leave the dams so the fire department would have a little water incase they have to fight a bosque fire. Last summer someone was starting fires in the bosque. The fire chief said they put a pump in the Clearwater ditch and it sucked the ditch dry in two minutes. That was after they beaver dams were removed, and the water was a trickle.
These are wonderful pictures.
A lovely heron and photos.
That is a beautiful heron, Tim. You see quite a variety of wildlife down there.
Thanks, Lavinia. We do have a wild life and wildlife down here.
Unlike the Yellow ones, the Black-Crowned will hunt most of the day – glad you got the blood-eye in your shots, really makes that bird.
It’s a bloody cool bird. Thanks, Brian.
We had four herons pop in yesterday .. they have been regular visitors lately! I’m yet to get a photo of them ..
Herons are all over the place. Thanks, Julie.
