Cormorant, says I with no confidence.
Nice try, but it doesn't look like any of the cormorants photos that Google showed me. I have seen cormorants along the Yarra though (I know that now!). I wonder if I googled "blue/grey water bird" whether I would get anywhere...stay tuned...nope. "Melbourne water birds" didn't even yield a single picture of a bird on the first page of results! I have a friend who is a sometime twitcher. I'll ask him.
Nice place, and I don't know the bird's name, but it is so pretty..
Could it be ibis bird? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IbisScroll to the bottom to see moreof those.I´m not a bird expert but one australian blogger, who I forgot now, has those often. At least the beak looks the same.
It sure looks like an egret one seen in the warmer climates of USA!
The offspring ( who is a junior twitcher) has just left so I can't ask him, but tis a nice looking feathered beastie ;)
It looks like a White Faced Heron (Egretta novaehollandiae). There's a nice close-up photo at http://blather.net/abroad/archives/2008/03/white_faced_heron.html
I don't know what kind of bird that is, but I really love the shot. I love the composition and the colors!
Howdy Dear GIM:Luv This Photo.Cute Bird (No I Do Not Know It Species)If It Were In The USA It Would Be In Either In The Egret Or Loon Family But In Oz I Would Never Hazard A Guess...This Is A Brilliant Capture,From The Composition To The Reflection In The Water...Which Is A Big Fave Of Mine As A Subject...Cheers For Sharing All You Do With So Much Heart & Perception...http://www.flickr.com/photos/zardoz69/Peace Be With You & Yours,In All Ways For All Time...Sincerely:Joel.A.Fairchild...
The first shot reminds me of the ramshackle lanes in old England like in York.
