“There is this Little Heron (Butorides striata) who lives in my urban neighbourhood and occasionally visits my garden. Was out for a short walk in the neighbourhood and it was very agreeable to being approached. My wife and I watched it make a number of short calls. It would arc its neck upward and let out a short gurgle like noise “urk” (above left).
“It was late in the evening (6.30pm) so lighting was limited.
“Details of its plumage is shown above (right)
