Great Birding Moments #12 White Faced Heron
White Faced Herons are a widespread and common waterbird in our region. On many occasions I have had close up views of this species and usually without a camera in my hand. Last Thursday, while at St Kilda north of Adelaide, I was able to creep up reasonably close to one feeding in the shallows. It was more pre-occupied by feeding rather than watching me.
With the 12x zoom fully extended on my camera, plus a little tweaking on the computer I was able to get the above photo. Not as sharp as I’d like but satisfying all the same.
