The Striated Heron (Butorides striata) also known as Mangrove Heron, Little Heron or Green-backed Heron, is a small heron. Striated Herons are mostly non-migratory and noted for some interesting behavioral traits. Their breeding habitat is small wetlands in the Old World tropics from west Africa to Japan and Australia, and in South America.
Adults have a blue-grey back and wings, white underparts, a black cap, a dark line extends from the bill to under the eye and short yellow legs. Juveniles are browner above and streaked below.
These birds stand still at the water's edge and wait to ambush prey, but are easier to see than many small heron species. They mainly eat small fish, frogs and aquatic insects. They sometimes use bait, dropping a feather or leaf carefully on the water surface and picking fish that come to investigate.

Hello Foozi,
Too cute!! Such a lovely picture. Perfectly composed and shown with your typical sqaure framing. Lovely greyish tints, best sharpness. Bravo!

Hello Foozi,

You're capturing well this heron by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the Striated Heron with a blue-grey back/wings, white underparts, a black cap, cute eyes and long bill. It'a cute bird. You catch well this bird by a good place with water plant of riverside.

Kind regards,
