Cattle egret (Bubulcus ibis)

During the breeding season the head- and chest plumage is lively ochroid:

Here a young heron is making his first steps in the branches:

A little theatrically the adult bird is coming for feeding and the youngster is as theatrically calling the attention to it:

As the father so the son!

"Where are all my children?":

After the youngsters walk around in the branches of the trees, the adult birds have to keep a sharp look out for them:

These jolly guys I just like very much and about their expressions and impish actions I always have a good laugh!
