Purple Heron

Ardea purpurea


The long neck of Purple Heron looks particularly snake-like, with more of an S-shape in flight.


The call is a loud croaking "krek".

Wonderful series of photos- I wasn't even aware there was a purple heron. they look similar to our tri-colored and great blue herons.
