WHITE-FACED HERON

(Ardea novaehollandiae)

The White-faced Heron is a tall slim native bird. They are grey with a white face, chin and upper throat. They are solitary birds often seen in the 18 acre paddock and the sports fields of Cornwall Park in the mornings where the ground can be sodden. They have large wings for a long slow wing beat making them look very graceful when in flight.
