[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot is taken from my car. I was driving by the narrow road along the riverbank.

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. Vagrants have been recorded on oceanic islands, such as Chuuk and Yap in the Federated States of Micronesia, the Marianas and Palau; the bird recorded on Yap on February 25, 1991, was from a continental Asian rather than from a Melanesian population, while the origin of the bird seen on Palau on May 3, 2005 was not clear.

This bird was long considered to be conspecific with the closely related North American species, the Green Heron, which is now usually separated as B. virescens, as well as the Lava Heron of the Galápagos Islands ; collectively they were called "green-backed herons".

Hello Foozi,
Interesting pose of the Heron caught with this shot. I also like your habitual square framing here and the fine colours. A little bit noise in the background, easily removable with neat-programms.

Hello foozi,
I have never seen this particular heron before, therefore I thank you for introducing it to us here on TN. Judging from your image I imagine it to be about the size of our Green Herons. From what I can see of it's wing markings they appear to be quite intricately marked and very pretty. I also like the little crest it wears on top of it's head.

Hello Foozi
Beautiful photo! Nice pose, good composition and wonderful lighting.

Very interesting bird. Great diagonal composition. Very nice gray colors.

This is also very beautiful heron. I have seen it lastly in Ghana in last week.
You nicely captured it with its characteristic pose. Focus, POV/DOF and colors very nice. Thanks for sharing. All the best
