White-faced heron - Out at Taiaroa Head this afternoon this heron was feeding in the grass behind the viewing platform on skinks. I ended up sharing this bird with some photographer from Gore.

The white-necked heron is a shy bird & very wary of its surrounds only keeping to areas where it has a clear view of what is around it. Commonly found in shallow wetlands usually seen foraging singly also in pairs. Will defend feeding territories against other species aggressively. Observed harassing species of ibis (Threskiornis moluccus) & raptors, often stealing prey they have caught.
