My 96 year old mother lives in an aged care hostel next to the repatriation 
hospital in Heidelberg.

She told me that she and another resident watched two herons foraging in the 
rank grass of the old hospital grounds last week.  She thought they were 
Nankeen Hight Herons and described them in some detail.

I showed her the illustrations on my iPhone app and she confirmed her 

I thought the location was a little unusual for that species but I was more 
than impressed with my mother's ability to observe and identify birds.
