merganser

Merganser from a walk a week ago. The brown crest says merganser, but the body markings are unusually vivid.

green backed heron

Green backed heron from tonight. Greens keep their necks scrunched down and then magically stretch them out to strike at a fish.

I need to show Chun Woo the merganser. For the crest, you know.

I've never even heard of or seen the bird in the first picture until seeing this post. Looks like a rather strange specie.

That green backed heron looks like he could do some serious damage on unsuspecting fish.

Green herons are such cool birds, hunched like that until the neck comes out!

I had no idea herons could do that -- that must be really impressive to see in action!

Cool crest.
