Nankeen Night-Heron

Nankeen Night-Heron (Image ID 37080)
CommentI was fortunate to watch a colony of roosting Nankeen Night-Herons, & noticed quite a few flying around together as a pair. I'm not sure if this is a male/female pair, as the only difference to distinguish them is the male is slightly larger than the female. The long white plume is suggestive of breeding. I like the stance & position of these two together-looking out for each other.
