These two White Faced Herons were fishing in the dam today. We often wonder what lives beneath the surface of the water. Not being fisher-person’s, we don’t really know the tell-tale signs, and we don’t own the right equipment to attempt to fish in it. A photograph of one White-Faced Heron holding a yabby proves there are creatures living in the dam. For international readers, a yabby is a freshwater crustacean similar to a prawn. In the half hour or so that I was watching them, the herons caught quite a few. They also ventured up onto the banks of the dam to collect insects and perhaps frogs or lizards as well. The captions below the photographs tell the rest of the story.
