CommentWe have been fortunate to have on of these Herons at the Wetlands this Summer and have been observing some very intriguing behaviour like this. The consensus from local Twitchers was that the bird was grooming and looking for insects etc under its wings. Normally I wouldn't go with shade on the face but in this case it was part of the behaviour - very umbrella like really! Stunning bird!
