The Partner?

Partner or Chic?
Long, white neck and black feathers


The white-faced grey
taking off when I spooked it

Betsy...ha, it's not a good look, is it!

the plumage looks darker than #1...perhaps the mate?

Delwyn...yes, it's a lot darker...I've just looked it up; it's the Pacific heron Ardea pacifica. I presume they're mates, as they're always together now.
