  1. Great bird! Though I have to admit when I first read the blog title, I thought it said "Fascinated" tiger heron.

    Well, I'm fascinated, even if the bird isn't.

  2. Very interesting coloring on the Heron. Nice photos!

  3. Very nice photos of the Tiger-Heron! You were lucky to see this "ghost bird"

  4. I didn't have time to try to find your Watery Wednesday post so I'll post here. These are great shots. Interesting bird.

  5. A "ghost bird" as BK says, my first Fasciated TH for Panama was last year, after 15 years birding!


I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
