Great pictures of these birds. So funny when they stand on one leg....I certainly couldn't do that for any length of time....especially when I am sleeping! :-)

Oh my, these are wonderful! Look how sharp their eyes and beaks are! I have only seen the Great Blue.

I love seeing photos of birds of any type (except crows). These are great!

Vagabonde said...

Those pictures are wonderful! Some of the birds look so delicate, such as the Black-necked Stilt – its legs are so thin. Great pics.

How nice it is too see them up close. I'm always impressed with their skinny little long legs! Amazing!

Valerie said...

I love the herons both on land and flying. They often fly over my garden on their way to yet another lake. I also envy the stilt who can stand for ages on one leg... grins.
