Pond Heron at Hebbal

Pond Heron at Hebbal

Pond Heron is one of the most beautiful birds. Just want to say what is written in wiki : They are however distinctive when put to flight, the bright white wings flashing in contrast to the cryptic streaked olive and brown colours of the body. The camouflage is so excellent that they will often allow humans to approach very close before taking to flight, and this has resulted in folk names and beliefs that the birds are short-sighted or blind.

I spotted this bird at many places in Bangalore. Not much scared with human but loud noise or running sound, force them to fly.
