CommentThis Nankeen Night-Heron was successfully "fishing" each high tide change on the Penticost River at Home Valley Station on the Gibb River road. It would often launch itself into the water and frantically stab at the startled fish with its beak, very successfully. There was also a large croc that was active in the same area so I'm not sure about the long term strategy of the NNHeron.
