Gray Heron - Portugal

The gray heron has four subspecies and I've now seen the same subspecies three times: in the Okavanga Delta of Botswana; in Sri Lanka; and now in the Tagus River Estuary of Portugal.

  1. One of the things I love about the great gray heron is that it looks like a completely different bird in flight than it does when it is standing on the ground. The neck folds in and the huge wings reach out, totally changing all the body proportions. And those pointed ballerina toes--love it!
