Juvenile Nankeen Night-heron

Since February we have been seeing juvenile Nankeen Night-herons roosting and hunting along Elster Creek. Good conditions inland and locally over the spring and summer has meant good numbers are appearing. The juvenile has brown and white streaking to help with camouflage while building up their survival and hunting skills.

  1. What a great blog Malt, I am always interested in what birds are down south. I follow Davids blog Birds as Poetry from down south of Melbourne.
