SQUACCO HERON (DANUBE DELTA)

The squacco heron (Ardeola ralloides) is a small heron, 44–47 cm (17–19 in) long, of which the body is 20–23 cm (7.9–9.1 in), with 80–92 cm (31–36 in) wingspan. It is of Old World origins, breeding in southern Europe and the Greater Middle East.

The squacco heron is a migrant, wintering in Africa. It is rare north of its breeding range. This is a stocky species with a short neck, short thick bill and buff-brown back. In summer, adults have long neck feathers. Its appearance is transformed in flight, when it looks very white due to the colour of the wings.

The squacco heron's breeding habitat is marshy wetlands in warm countries. The birds nest in small colonies, often with other wading birds, usually on platforms of sticks in trees or shrubs. Three to four eggs are laid. They feed on fish, frogs and insects.

Waaw Marius! Another top quality capture. Very difficult but not for you. The sharpness is fantastic everywhere. The open wings is a show with these tranparencies,and the details of body and face too are the best! Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hello Marius,
Very well captured this Squacco Heron. Angle wasn't in your favour but perfect focus on its eyes. I like perfect exposure on its plumage. Good work, no doubt.
Thanks for sharing and sorry for visiting late,
Regards and have a nice WE
