A picture of a Black-Crowned Night Heron is worth a thousand birds.It's so Dutch around there, isn't it?ew

Nice pic. We have some beautiful Grey Herons here. Do you remember seeing Aku'u in Hawaii? I think I asked you that a long time ago. Anyway, same bird as in your pic, indigenous to the Islands. I loved watching them.
Yes, Dutch names, due to the settlers.
Pandabonium, I don't remember those, but I didn't do a lot of birdwatching when I was a kid. I'm afraid that the wading birds I mainly recall seeing were the cattle egrets at the Sumida watercress farm - a wonderful anomaly in the middle of a mall complex at the foot of the mountains where I grew up.
ps - Nope, I don't think names get much Dutch-er than Paerdegat. Although if my friend Will begs to differ, I would concede the point without protest.
