Not really sure if we are bird watching or the bird is watching us.
"Mum, Mum, look! Something landed in the neighbours yard! A flying thing!"
Yes something landed on the shed, a large bird, a White faced Heron I think. Lovely smokey grey feathers. A first time visitor to our backyard. A very convenient way to learn about our environment, flora and fauna.
We watched, he watched and that was that.
Later he came back to land in the yard right next to the dog (who was snoring), he had a look around and took off again.
What was he searching for?
