Grey heron Short Description-

The grey heron (Ardea cinerea) is a long-legged predatory wading bird of the heron family, native throughout temperate Europe and Asia and also parts of Africa. A bird of wetland areas, it can be seen around lakes, rivers, ponds, marshes and on the sea coast. It feeds mostly on aquatic creatures which it catches after standing stationary beside or in the water or stalking its prey through the shallows.

Introduction

Standing up to a metre tall, adults weigh from 1 to 2 kg .They have a white head and neck with a broad black stripe that extends from the eye to the black crest. The body and wings are grey above and the underparts are greyish-white, with some black on the flanks. The long, sharply pointed beak is pinkish-yellow and the legs are brown.

Behaviour

The birds breed colonially in spring in “heronries”, usually building their nests high in trees. A clutch of usually three to five bluish-green eggs is laid. Both birds incubate the eggs for a period of about 25 days, and then both feed the chicks, which fledge when seven or eight weeks old. Many juveniles do not survive their first winter, but if they do, they can expect to live for about five years.

The main call is a loud croaking “fraaank”, but a variety of guttural and raucous noises are heard at the breeding colony. The male uses an advertisement call to encourage a female to join him at the nest, and both sexes use various greeting calls after a pair bond has been established. 

The grey heron has a slow flight, with its long neck retracted (S-shaped). This is characteristic of herons and bitterns, and distinguishes them from storks, cranes, and spoonbills, which extend their necks.

Breeding

This species breeds in colonies known as heronries, usually in high trees close to lakes, the seashore or other wetlands. Other sites are sometimes chosen, and these include low trees and bushes, bramble patches, reed beds, heather clumps and cliff ledges. The same nest is used year after year until blown down; it starts as a small platform of sticks but expands into a bulky nest as more material is added in subsequent years. It may be lined with smaller twigs, strands of root or dead grasses, and in reed beds, it is built from dead reeds. The male usually collects the material while the female constructs the nest. Breeding activities take place between February and June. When a bird arrives at the nest, a greeting ceremony occurs in which each partner raises and lowers its wings and plumes.

Courtship Behaviour

The male calling from the chosen nesting site. On the arrival of the female, both birds participate in a stretching ceremony, in which each bird extends its neck vertically before bringing it backwards and downwards with the bill remaining vertical, simultaneously flexing its legs, before returning to its normal stance. The snapping ceremony is another behaviour where the neck is extended forward, the head is lowered to the level of the feet and the mandibles are vigorously snapped together. This may be repeated twenty to forty times. When the pairing is settled, the birds may caress each other by attending to the other bird’s plumage. The male may then offer the female a stick which she incorporates into the nest. At this, the male becomes excited, further preening the female and copulation takes place.

Grey herons have the ability to live in cities where habitats and nesting space are available.

Tiger said to be one of the nature’s most feared predator. It can kill an animal which is as bigger as twice its’ own size.

Tigers are most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside

Tigers are apex predators, primarily preying on ungulates such as deer and bovids. They are territorial and generally solitary but social animals, often requiring large contiguous areas of habitat that support their prey requirements. This, coupled with the fact that they are indigenous to some of the more densely populated places on Earth, has caused significant conflicts with humans.

The ancestor is saber-toothed cat. If it loses its canines (tearing teeth) through injury or old age, it can no longer kill and is likely to starve to death.

Tiger prefers living alone.It tries to keep its’ territory free of any rival. Territory is around 100 sq. KM

The roar of a Bengal tiger can carry for over 2km at night.

Tigers use their distinctive coats as camouflage (no two have exactly the same stripes).

They are usually nocturnal hunter.Although tigers are powerful and fast over short distances, the Bengal tiger cannot outrun fleet footed prey such as deer. They generally hunt alone and ambush their prey as most other cats do, overpowering them from any angle, using their body size and strength to knock the prey off balance. Successful hunts usually require the tiger to almost simultaneously leap onto its quarry, knock it over, and grab the throat or nape with its teeth

If the kill is large, the tiger may drag the remains to a thicket and loosely bury it with leaves, then return to it later.

Females give birth to litters of two to six cubs, which they raise with little or no help from the male. Cubs cannot hunt until they are 18 months old and remain with their mothers for two to three years, when they disperse to find their own territory. Like domestic cats, all tigers can purr. Unlike their tame relatives, however, which can purr as they breathe both in and out, tigers purr only as they breathe out.

Unlike many cats, tigers are strong swimmers and often deliberately bathe in ponds, lakes and rivers as a means of keeping cool in the heat of the day.

Lions have been known to breed with tigers (most often the Amur and Bengal subspecies) to create hybrids called ligers and tigons. Such hybrids were once commonly bred in zoos, but this is now discouraged due to the emphasis on conservation. Hybrids are still bred in private menageries and in zoos in China

Image Title-Royal Bengal Tiger T 73

Short description-This is T73 a female Bengal Tiger. This was sighting in mid of may last year. Zone number 5. Only our vehicle was there to witness this wild beauty very closely. Almost closing time of safari ,and we were coming back then we could manage meeting with this jungle queen. She did all the pose for us,spent half an hour with us. There was little bit darkening,only our gypsy and this wild beauty. enough reason to make that time very much thrilled and scary. Even the well experienced driver and guard was bit anxious. I was very much excited and busy capturing her beauty with my Canon 7 d burst mode. One interesting thing that again made us bit scary was that particular tiger was notorious for chasing vehicle.
Any way a wonderful experience..!!
