HIRA PUNJABI – ‘Get the Bird’
‘Get the Bird’ This Grey Heron, seen here feeding in the shallow waters that are its hunting grounds, is a wading bird of the heron family Ardeidae, native throughout temperate Europe and Asia and also parts of Africa. The birds show a preference for fish, frogs, and insects, which they will snatch from the water using their long bills. They wait motionless for their prey to approach within strike range and their victims may include small mammals and reptiles, and the occasional bird.
