heron

The common White-faced Heron is unlikely to be mistaken for any other bird with their prominent white face and yellow legs easily distinguishable from a distance. They live in all parts of Australia but prefer wetlands. This one was very interested in whatever was happening in this pile of grass on Look At Me Now Headland that juts into the Pacific Ocean on the NSW North Coast. The mass of yellow flowers is one of the many low lying plants that carpet the headland.
