Squacco Heron (Tr:Alaca Balıkcıl)
The Squacco Heron, Ardeola ralloides, is a small heron, 40-49 cm long with 82-95 cm wingspan. It is of Old World origins, breeding in southern Europe and the Middle East. It 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.

Their breeding habitat is marshy wetlands in warm countries. They nest in small colonies, often with other wading birds, usually on platforms of sticks in trees or shrubs. 3-4 eggs are laid.

These herons feed on insects, fish and amphibians.
Wikipedia free Ansiklopedia
TR:Küçük ve tıknaz bir balıkçıldır. İlkbaharda rengi parlak pembemsi-sarımsı kahverengidir ve başındaki açık renk tüyler sırtına kadar uzanır. Diğer zamanlarda rengi mat, açık kahverengi-kremdir ancak uçarken dikkat çekici beyaz kanatlarını gözler önüne serer. Gençlerinin sırtı daha koyudur ve boyunlarının ön tarafı çizgilidir.

Hi Cahit. This is a very good close up of the head area and neck. very good detail in the dark feathers on the top of its head. And the green around the eye. It stands out so well from the dark BG. well done TFS.

Hello Cahit,

This is a very special photo showing the bird in a flash light in great contrast with the black background. There are good details of bird's head and good looking colors.

Hi Cahit,

A beautiful profile of this Heron who seems to be glowing. I love the yellow eye and the long feathers going down his black. The black background is a wonderful contrast.

Hi Cahit.
Wonderful portrait of a charming bird you have shared. I like contrast with light and warm image of the heron and damped up BG. Details and sharpness of the image are great as usual and framing and composition of the shot are blameless for my taste. Well done and TFS.

Merhaba Cahit,
A superb close portrait of a Squacco Heron in breeding plumage.
The sharpness is perfect in this fine head and neck portrait, the use of flash giving great colours against a contrasting black BG.
Well done and thanks for sharing this beauty,
Regards,
Ivan
