Green Heron Exploring and Hunting
5

I've been taking a lot of green heron photos at the Marine Nature Study Area in Oceanside, NY the past week. I've struggled to chose which ones to share and have finally made some decisions. These were taken the first day after the heat wave in New York City and as there were shows in the area I had the park to my self most of the morning. All are shooting down into a stream requiring high angles so I chose to include reflections. This was a very small green heron which is already a small heron so it's a rather young bird.

Very nice series Morris!

My favourites are #1,#3, #8. Are these herons part of the night heron family? We have the Nankeen Night Heron here in Australia which seems similar except for the colour differences. Cheers

Thank you Murray,

They do look similar yet I found no reference to say they are.  Just herons
