I have always thought...

white birds
I have always thought that stars turn into white birds in the morning light
& sleep with their heads under their wings
until the dusk begins to walk through the streets.

Little Blue Heron


The white faced or little blue heron is supposed to be the most commonly seen heron in Australia.
But this was the first - 2008 - and last time I have ever seen one.
Perhaps young - the legs are not very yellow
- I found this character wandering alone at Sorrento on Port Phillip Bay.

We only have grey heron in Sweden. What a luck you have had to see a blue heron.

Nice image of the heron. It is odd that you are not finding them in view of their supposed abundance.

Hi Gemma!! Nice capture!! This is a variety of heron I've not yet seen or photographed.

Lovely shot.
Blue herons aren't seen here. So it's nice to see one :)
Have a nice day.

Very nice shot - I got some images of this species from the other side of the bay last summer - I'll get them organised one day!

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW

Pretty!!! Around our area of the globe our little blue herons have a rich wine colored head. I would LOVE to see this species in real time.
