(1000 Islands New York/Green Herons)

I have only had the opportunity to photograph these smaller herons a couple of times. This is most likely because of its small size and excellent camouflage.

They look like a small bird with a short neck, but don't be fooled, they can extend their neck to double their overall length. They have also been known to bait small fish by placing an object such as an insect on the water surface.
