Default White-necked Herons

On our recent outback Australia trip we spent quite a bit of time around the River Darling, one of our inland rivers. I have never seen so many White-necked Herons, which was wonderful as they have obviously bred very well.
We saw different sizes and great variation in their plumage - they were in trees, on land and in the river.
Here are a couple.

Showing beautiful maroon scapulars.



And interesting pattern on the front.

Thanks all - nice birds these - seem very placid and just go about their business quietly. Appreciate you looking.
