BARE-THROATED TIGER-HERON :video clips of Bentsen bird

POST NOTE: All videoscoping and digiscoping of the Bare-Throated Tiger-Heron by me were taken from a distance of no less than 100 feet but up to 160 feet and only from the authorized roads and trails authorized by Tx State Parks.I took these two video clips of the BARE-THROATED TIGER-HERON on 12-31-09. They do not have as much action as my first video clip but they do provide a realistic view of a bird that stands in place to do much of it's hunting. In the top video the bird starts with it's head in a forward position and quickly moves it back up. Then someone walks in front of the spotting scope followed by the bird hunting in position but moving it's head small amounts back and forth. In the bottom video clip, which was taken not long after the video clip of the bird engaged in feeding behavior (and posted 2 posts below), displays some chewing-like behaviors towards the end of the clip (sorry for the white spot, it's some kind of reflection that can be difficult to avoid when digiscoping and videoscoping). Interestingly, the bird moves it's head so that it's right eye appears quite bulging (due to angle of view??). Hint: you can enlarge these a little more by hitting the "View" tab at the top of your screen then clicking on 'zoom in' one or several times (but quality may diminish some) SeEtta
