Bird Image: Striated Heron at Okukubi Dam in Kin Town

Butorides striata, Little Heron, bird

This Little Heron seems to be a regular visitor to the spillway at Kin Dam.

Traveling around the entire dam, this shot was taken on the way home.

Several photos of Buzzard Eagles and Osprey were taken, as well.

This just happens to be a favorite, because the bird stood still for the shot.

Camera: Pentax K3

Lens: Sigma 50-500 at 500mm

Exposure: f/16   1/250   ISO 200

Little Heron, Mangrove Heron, Lava Heron and Green-backed Heron are common names.

Its scientific name: Butorides striata
