The Purple Heron (Scientific name: Ardea purpurea) “…feeds in shallow water, spearing fish, frogs, insects, spiders, small birds, rodents, salamanders, and snakes. It will often wait motionless for prey, or slowly stalk its victim. It tends to keep within reed beds more than the grey heron, and is often inconspicuous, despite its size” So says Wiki and rightly so. It makes an art of motionless stance that it is not easy for your eye to pick it out of the surroundings, in spite of its color and size.
