Observing and photographing in a heron rookery is always special treat. Lovely images, a pleasure to view JackiePan.

Far as I know the only difference, which can be hard to see (at least for me) is size and bill length - the males being larger with a longer bill. Easier to see the differences if you can see a mating pair sitting next to each other.

Stay safe. Ev

Thank you, i will take a close observation at their bill length.

Stay safe.
