Suzanham posted a photo:  The Great Blue Herons have special neck vertebrae that allow them to curl their neck in to an “S” shape. This structure of their neck facilitates them a very quick strike at their prey. During the flight, the neck is folded back into the S-shape and the legs are stretched out behind them.  Herons and egrets were usually hunted during the 19th century for their plumes. Their beautiful feathers were used to decorate hats made for women. This led to the depletion of…

siddharthx posted a photo:  The night herons are medium-sized herons, 58–65 cm, in the genera Nycticorax, Nyctanassa, and Gorsachius. The genus name Nycticorax derives from the Greek for “night raven” and refers to the largely nocturnal feeding habits of this group of birds, and the croaking crow-like call of the best known species, the black-crowned night heron.  In Europe, night heron is often used to refer to the black-crowned night heron, since it is the only member of the genus in that…

siddharthx posted a photo:  They usually breed in colonies, occasionally mixed with cormorants or herons. The darters pair bond monogamously at least for a breeding season. There are many different types of displays used for mating. Males display to attract females by raising (but not stretching) their wings to wave them in an alternating fashion, bowing and snapping the bill, or giving twigs to potential mates. To strengthen the pair bond, partners rub their bills or wave, point upwards or…
