Scientific name : Nycticorax nycticorax
English name : Night Heron
In June, I found a colony of Night Heron on withered trees in the shallow of the King Talal dam.
They were keeping a lookout for me incubating their beautiful blue eggs.
I was taking photos discreetly from a distant bush.
Wating a little bid, the male and female of the Heron came flying alternately.
They showed me that they protected their eggs in cooperation with one another.
