Heron juhoamerická (Ardea coco)


ardea-cocoi6When I first saw herons South American (Ardea coco) when entering Pantanalu I immediately remembered the “our” volavku popolavú (Ardea cinerea). In addition to differences in color was probably the main feature for me really, that these herons neodleteli until we come close to the own 20 meter distance.

As we sat in the car or in the boat we could be closer to those 10 m. This, in Slovakia, and probably across Europe there is. Herons but also other birds, especially raptors have a legitimate fear of people and their úteková distance is sometimes 100 m. V “civilized” Europe is haunted by people all the animals, that eat anything that could bring profit. Fish, rabbits and other animals divožijúce monopolizing the persecution and uphold the, that they cause damage.

Animals do not understand is, that today millions of years of valid laws of nature no longer. Today, what nature is created all living beings,now includes all people. Each animal, are trying to catch something that has survived, is persecuted, and therefore their shyness is essential for their survival.

This I duly turned aside from the subject :) . Back to Shill. Virtually every major “mláke” at least one of the many species living in volaviek Pantanale. The most luxurious residence in a farm in the northern part Pantanalu, we can see sailing boats home volavku juhoamerickú. She was taught to dokrmovanie tourists. Our guide threw the pirate with a piece of stem of lily, which is flying through the water. Heron flew, nabodla piraňu a odletela you bezpečia zožrať. Built in the following shots :)
