Tiger Heron



This is "bezerro" a young rufescent tiger-heron (Tigrisoma lineatum , socó-boi in portuguese). He was born in 2006 and has joined our girls Leticia and Ana Emilia at the beach right after he could fly. He never would get to close, watching them play with sand and fishes from a save distance. Now and then, we still see him and we can approach him up to 10 meters. After 2 years of age, he will change his feathers to the adult colors.
