Not so Wild Bird! :-) This Nankeen Night Heron was hanging around the Mandurah foreshore, looking for bits of bait, scraps or anything else it could snaffle! It even got as close as one guys catch bucket.

2 views of the same (type of) bird. A Splendid Fairy Wren, Pic 1 in plain clothes, (Eclipse) & Pic 2 dressed up in his best suit for the girlies. Amazing how a bird can change his colours!
