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.

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.

Hallo Cahit
Brilliant capture of this charming heron. This photo is stunning, and I like the sharpness and details you got on the plumage. The moments pose resulting in a splendid photo. The colour of the eye is impressive, and I am stunned at the clarity of the detail around the eye itself. A well focused, well framed and well presented image. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
My best regards.
Anna

Hi Cahit,
You presented a good post and a nice hair style of the Heron. Blue bill and greenish eye side make a good make up for this Heron.
Nice exposure as well, it like bringing me to the fantasy.

Posterimsi geri zeminin önünde harika bir portre olmuş Cahit, renkler ve tüylenme detayları nefis, göz ve çevresinin renklenmesi ayrı bir alem. Sırt tarafta belirgin "soft focus" etkisi de hoş durmuş, kutlarım dostum.

Hello Cahit,
A beautiful close portrait of a Squacco Heron in breeding plumage. You caught him in fine pose to the wonderful blue of the beak and green round the eye, beautiful neck plume and the fine sandy colour of the neck and body. Not often we see the beauty of this species in the breeding season.
Excellent POV, BG and composition too.
TFS this beauty,
