HERONS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

GOOD OLD HERONS. There are only a few species to choose from, so this one is go­ing to be nice and easy. This is what you may be think­ing as you take on this month’s ID Chal­lenge. But we have stirred things up a tad, so it isn’t quite as easy as it could be. They are not that hard, ei­ther, though... Yes, they are all reg­u­larly Bri­tish birds, but not nec­es­sar­ily look­ing ex­actly how you may want to find them. We also hope this makes the whole ID process a bit more re­al­is­tic, as see­ing birds in the field is never quite the same as see­ing them neatly ar­ranged in a field guide. So, all you have to do is look at th­ese six herons and try to name them. Then, as usual, turn the page for our so­lu­tions and rea­son­ing, and turn again for fur­ther tips con­cern­ing field iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, par­tic­u­larly re­lated to herons and heron-like birds. WHAT AM I?
