Wild Bird Wednesday 425 - Pied Heron

The Pied Heron (Ardea picata formerly Egretta picata) is a small tropical heron that occurs in the more northern parts of Australia. It can be seen in large groups when roosting, but these birds were doing the classic heron thing of hunting on the edge of the water.

These birds were seen at Yellow Waters, a wonderful wetland area of Kakadu National Park.
