Lip Lapping, Green Heron

Lip Lapping, Green Heron

Finally! For some reason it has taken almost 2 years to catch one again. Green Heron have no lips, that’s obvious. Which begs the question… why do they lick their lips.

I have caught them before but not recently. However, wait for it…

And some lip lapping.

Enter Green Heron in the search box on this site and scroll through the articles. I never marked  any text with the lapping thing, but just look. You’ll see they actually do this as a habit.
