Short Striated Heron
05-JUL-2007 İAlexander Dudley 2007

Short Striated Heron

South Alligator River, Kakadu National Park

I am convinced that Striated herons and Night herons share a feeding strategy. They walk along the water's edge looking like
rugby players and fish looking up think "Ha! That bird has no neck! I'll just swim up and tease it."
This is a dangerous thing for a fish to do.
