And a little smile please

The Cattle Egret (Ardea ibis) 48-53cm arrived in Australia about 1950. He is a small squat Egret, often in flocks with livestock. His posture is usually hunched and in the breeding season he grows spiky orange-yellow plumes. The Cattle Egret prefers grasshoppers, especially during breeding season, but eats many other invertebrates. It also eats frogs, cane toads, lizards and some small mammals. Press F11
Ein kleines Lächeln bitte.
Der Kuhreiher (Ardea ibis) 48-53cm kam ca. 1950 über Asien nach Australien. Er is ein kleiner gedrungener Reiher, sehr oft in Scharen mit Weidetieren. Seine Haltung ist gewöhnlich gebückt und in der Paarungszeit bekommt er stachliges orangen-gelbes Gefieder. Der Kuhreiher lebt in der Brütezeit haupsächlich von Heuschrecken, aber isst auch andere Tiere wie Frösche, Eidechsen und andere kleine wirbellose Tiere. Drücke die Taste F11
