Thanks Peter, the day was overcast, really not good light at all ... I was on the hunt for the Freckled duck and got a little excited when i spied in my viewfinder what i thought was my lucky day , but NO frown   i think it was a female Blue-billed duck instead . Picture is really crappy but they do look similar at first glance ( just no crest) .... so my hunt still continues. Super glad there was quite a few White-neck Herons to brighten my day !!!!!!!!!!!!

Kerry - Perth, Western Australia.

White-necked (Pacific is so much nicer a name IMO) Herons are BEAUTIFUL! Especially when you see the purple sheen on the wings. Nicely done and congrats!
