283 - White-faced Heron

Today's little 5" x 7" study is another New Zealand species, a white-faced heron.  It's a small heron - about the size of the tri-colored heron in North America.  I see many more of them than I did when I lived in New Zealand years ago and my bird guide says they're 'an abundant native'.    I've seen them in a variety of habitats: along the coast, amongst the mangroves and in paddocks.  They're cute little guys!
