Spotting Heron on the Ground

More often than not, herons are seen on the ground in open areas, but only because they are extremely difficult to see in thick undergrowth. The best way to spot herons in dense undergrowth is to scan small areas with your binoculars or camera, which is exactly how I managed to photograph this one.

Sometimes herons are found in amongst long dry grasses, as in this image, because they are more likely to hear ol’ Red or his vixen creeping up on them.
