White-faced Herons: Neighbours

White-faced Heron,Egretta novaehollandiae


I showed a couple of young last week, and we discussed how well they blend in and how difficult to see.


Just next door, about 30m from the first nest is a second one, and this was the first time I'd noticed it.

Giveaway was the adult arriving with a meal. The adult puts its beak inside the younger bird's, and regurgitates the collected food.

There are two young in this clutch and they would be a week to 10 days later than the ones I've shown already.
