white heron with white-faced herons
This is probably the same white heron as that seen in the photo below (5 June). This time it was feeding in water-logged pasture along with a flock of smaller white-faced herons. The farm trough was a good place for a drink of fresh water.
Royal spoonbill with flounder
Different day, different estuary. The spoonbill struggled with the flounder which was too wide for it to swallow, but it tried very hard.

The white heron was feeding near a small flock of royal spoonbills. The spoonbills were relaxed about my presence but the heron was nervous and watched me until I left.
