Striated Heron (Butorides striata) , rarely seen here. Severs Beach, occasionally, Snug Cove and Nullica River are the only sightings I have had of these. The used to be known as the Mangrove Heron.
This bird has a characteristic hunched posture, pulling its head closely into its body, and flicks its tail downwards as it stalks its prey on mudflats.

Azure Kingfisher (Ceyx azureus ) stays all year round. A beautiful flash of Blue along a creek is most peoples only view of them.
This diminutive species inhabits the vegetation beside waterways and other wetlands, where it often perches on low, overhanging branches, searching for its prey of fish, crustaceans and aquatic insects, captured by shallow plunging into the water.
