Tricolored Heron Takes A Bath


I love capturing bird behavior, including they’re taking time for a bath.

So how does a long-legged shorebird take a bath in shallow water?

This Tricolored Heron shows it’s not difficult!

  1. Detecting birds and animals behaviour is amuzing and teaching. It is quite strange that heron does not wet its wings! Love your heron bathing serie Donna!
