World Bird Wednesday - Nankeen Night Heron
On the last afternoon in Perth I managed to sneak away to a local lake – it was so full of life I think it may have been making coal! I had seen it the night before from Kings Park – the highest point in Perth – and it looked like a cut off section of the Swan River.
The best find was this immature Nankeen Night Heron. It was just sitting there near the water’s edge. It was so cooperative I actually began to suspect in was dead. But I did eventually see it move! Hard to believe this was taken in a place surrounded by main road in peak hour traffic!
You can find more birds from around the world at World Bird Wednesday.

Enjoy the birds.
