Pied pied pied

For those of us without hours and hours of time to sit around waiting for wildlife there is a really good alternative. A trip to your local zoo or wildlife park can present a wonderful opportunity to get reasonably close to animals and birds that are relatively habituated to people.

It also saves the need for really expensive telephoto lenses, hides and a good set of waders! This Pied Heron was photographed at a local wildlife park in Port Douglas, the Wildlife Habitat, many many moons ago and it’s one of my favourite bird photos.
