It Made Some Awkward Poses



The Little Heron was comical at times but, it was an interesting bird to watch.

Hopefully, when they finish building the Kin Dam, we'll see more of them.

These birds, are nowhere near, as large as a Grey Heron.

But, they have some colorful markings.

The heron was scouting out the Okukubi River, close to the new dam.

They like to eat fish and even call out to them.

 Sometimes, they aren't so lucky at catching anything but, that happens to people, too.

 Once, the little rascal got more than it could handle so, it let one get away.

Did that ever happen to you, when you went fishing ?

Me neither.  I eat, mostly hamburgers.  Hah !
