The Heron may be drying his wings. Comorants dry their wings this way all the time, although Comorants get their wings wetter than a Heron ever would, as they are diving birds.

Thanks Rherman. That's an unusual pose for a heron! Neat shot. Jim
i've got shots of herons doing the same thing. i think they're trying to keep cool, but they look like the proverbial flasher in a rain-coat! :lol:

Lovely shots!!

Sometimes herons (and others) use their wings to cast a shadow in the water and thereby lure fish into the shadow!! (fish are attrached to shadowy areas for shelter and protection).

Thanks Squirl, I should have paid better attention to the sign identifying them! Jim

Jim those are definitely unusual birds. Are they in a zoo, or bird santuary: I notice that both birds in photo #2 are wearing bands, telling me that they have been identified and marked. They are very unusual, and I wonder if they are really native birds.

Nevertheless, they are beautiful and well worth viewing. Keep up the good work. Always enjoy your posts.
