A lone Green Heron sits quietly in the rain, as if deep in thought.
Often these Herons are found by themselves, watching, waiting and being completely silent.
A moment captured and shared
by our group.
The Green Heron prefers to eat by day and alone then retreat to
low-lying wetlands. They eat mostly fish and frogs, often using small insects to attract their prey.
They nest high in trees over water. They can expect to have 2 - 6 green eggs which both parents take in turn to incubate for 19 - 21 days.
