Little Green Heron

Walking around the Club Mahindra Cherai Beach Resort, I noticed a flash of feathers as a bird rose out of the water and flew to a tree. Curious, I waited till the bird returned, and I realized that it wasn’t wading in the water as I had thought, but stood at the edge of the water, on the boundary wall….

Even as I watched, it stretched out its neck, and pecked off something from the surface, and flew back to its perch, to eat in peace!

I was so fascinated by the sight, that I stood there for quite a while, watching the Little Green Heron catch its breakfast!

I spotted it again, later in the evening, this time perched on one of the Chinese Fishing Nets.

The Little Green Heron is apparently quite a common bird, seen frequently in these parts. For me, however, this was a first time sighting, one I thoroughly enjoyed!
