SQUACCO HERON (fishing in DANUBE DELTA)

I TAKE THE EXAMPLE OF PIERRE (heimann2) AND I MADE THIS COLLAGE ABOUT THIS HERON FISHING......

The squacco heron (Ardeola ralloides) is a small heron, 44–47 cm (17–19 in) long, of which the body is 20–23 cm (7.9–9.1 in), with 80–92 cm (31–36 in) wingspan. It is of Old World origins, breeding in southern Europe and the Greater Middle East.

The squacco heron is a migrant, wintering in Africa. It is rare north of its breeding range. This is a stocky species with a short neck, short thick bill and buff-brown back. In summer, adults have long neck feathers. Its appearance is transformed in flight, when it looks very white due to the colour of the wings.

The squacco heron's breeding habitat is marshy wetlands in warm countries. The birds nest in small colonies, often with other wading birds, usually on platforms of sticks in trees or shrubs. Three to four eggs are laid. They feed on fish, frogs and insects.

Fabulous action shots strung together in this sequential collage, Marius.
It is a cheerful presentation despite the fact that we are allowed a measly image size of 800 pixels.
Thanks and regards.
