"Aren't these birds supposed to prefer the shady gleam of night? Has anyone

I have seen a single Nankeen Night Heron on two separate occasions in full
daylight near the Hastings (Vic) Jetty. This was several years ago and I
don't remember if it was brilliant sunshine but it was certainly full
daylight. They used to roost in Pinus Radiata trees not too far away. Maybe
they still do?
