photographing and learning about wildlife
Slim, white long legged bird that eats fish, crabs and amphibians. They are generally seen on their own near to freshwater reservoirs.
There are around 60 different Ardeidae species around the world. They are freshwater and coastal birds.
They are very common in Uruguay - where I live - but I took the picture in Praia do Forte, Florianópolis, Brazil.
