White Heron and bird table

Postby Peter R » Tue Jul 24, 2018 12:30 pm

My nephew, who lives in Waitaki reports that he has a White Heron staking out his bird feeding table and attempting to catch Silvereyes. It positions itself in a bush next to the table and waits for lunch. So far it has not been seen to make a successful catch but because it keeps returning it most likely has.
