The surprisingly well camouflaged Indian Pond Herons at The City Park, Bokaro Steel City.
Dazzling white when flying, dirty brownish when stationary. I was really taken aback at the effectiveness of their camouflage given the deceiving contrast in the colours of their wings and that of their habitat. Took me a while to realise that their sudden appearance when I got closer to the branches was not just me being inattentive.
Tip ‘o the hat to Rashmi for identifying the bird.
