Last week we had seen two rufescent tiger-herons on this platform. Today one was lying on the nest. It then cut some branches and sat again

When we discovered the juvenile tiger-heron it had already caught this aquatic snake Helicops infrataeniatus. It shook the snake several times but unsuccessfully. The snake was very long and coiled around the bill as they usually do. Unluckily it moved away with the snake and the end of the story remains unknown

Second nest of tiger-herons of this season. It is very far and concealed. Anyway the activity of the two chicks may be observed.

An impressive frog caught by the tiger-heron. So huge that if was believed to be an American bullfrog Lithobates catesbeianus, a bad omen if it had been. This exotic frog is a voracious predator which can eliminate or drastically decrease the numbre of native species when it settles in a new environment. Luckily it turned out a Creole frog which has grown bigger than normal
