I've been seeing this bird around the ponds next to my office for some time now. I've been pretty busy so I didn't have time to takes photos of it, until today that is. Thanks to a nosy observer I had the chance to try some BIF on it ... not much success however.

Here it is (harsh midday sun):


I hope you like it!

nice shot. these birds can be difficult to sneak up on... this one looks identical to what we call a Great Blue Heron here in the States. here's one of our variety...

They are indeed refered toghether as they are very similar. From what I've seen so far the GB is has a little darker neck and chest.
