Actually I think I know the answer as Wikipedia says Cranes fly with their necks extended and this guy did too... so let's go for a crane!

Can anyone tell me what type of bird this is- it was on the railway track near the Royal Canal in Leixllip.

I think it is either a heron or a crane?

There is an old Irish saying/simile -

Chomh haerach le druid

As cheerful as a starling (or gay! if you like).


This fella in my backyard yesterday looks happy enough!
