I've a friend that lives in Australia. This White-necked Heron was meandering out in the paddocks near his house, several hundred metres from the nearest dam. Being a scientist, the friend, not the bird, I think it's driving him crazy that he can't explain why it was strolling around in the grass instead of frolicking in the water.
If anyone can provide an answer or at least hazard a guess, I'm sure it would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance. Denise
