This bird maybe big but it has been very difficult to have this stay put. Every time I stop my car in a distance this bird runs right away for cover, then I just have to sit still in the truck and wait until it comes back again. The pond where I took the photograph is always filled with the lilies and water plants and as soon as the bird sees us, this bird runs into the bush nearby.
There so many of this bird actually but they always like to stay near a bush by the water, always hiding and shy. There are more different kinds of them with different colours, but what is amusing, their feet. They are long and strange to look at.
