    This adorable, very small green heron (only stood maybe 9" tall) preened when talked to, but really loved whistles.

    This one was small - even for a green heron. It was completely unafraid and preened as I talked and whistled to it. It allowed 20+ pictures and was still standing there as I paddled away. (There are some real advantages of birding on a kayak!)

    Green heron showing its hidden neck

    The short, stocky looking little herons that seem to have no neck at all, reveal that they actually have quite a long neck hidden inside those feathers when they perch on a branch or reed over the water and stalk a fish

    Short and stocky looking heron, usually found lurking along the water's edge, in the reeds, or on overhanging branches...they have a deceptively long neck that they use as part of their speargun-style fishing method

    My what a long shadow you cast.

    Green heron along a canal. I found this one interesting as the bird looked quite sinister with the sunlight casting a long pointed shadow on its chest.

    How to release a water bird back into the wild?

    Hi everyone! So my friend had rescued two green herons, out of which one passed away sadly. The other one, Tara, has a broken leg which has set wrong, but he is otherwise healthy and has reached adulthood. I've been thinking of releasing him at a lake in our city where other water birds and...

    I was aiming at a flying egret and I happened to look down and this Heron was there ;) It was nice of it to stay put as I backed off on the lens length. ;)

    Green Heron digiscoped with Zeiss Diascope 85 and Samsung Note 10+. Little bird was pretty cooperative, and sat on this branch for quite awhile. He was roughly 50 yards away, and seemed to almost enjoy being the center of attention.

    This heron was still in the same position when I walked away. I just noticed for the first time the turtle behind it.

    We went down to Ashbridge's Bay to do a little birding. It was a gloriously sunny day. It was a wonderful outing and I am so thrilled with the photos I got today.

    A Green Heron leaps from its perch in pursuit of a fish in Tortuguero National Park, Costa Rica. It did catch the fish.
