The grey heron (Ardea cinerea) is a long-legged predatory wading bird of the heron family, Ardeidae, native throughout temperate Europe and Asia and also parts of Africa. It is resident in much of its range, but some populations from the more northern parts migrate southwards in autumn. A bird of wetland areas, it can be seen around lakes, rivers, ponds, marshes and on the sea coast. It feeds mostly on aquatic creatures which it catches after standing stationary beside or in the water or stalking its prey through the shallows.
---------------------------
Siva čaplja (lat. Ardea cinerea) je kod nas redovita gnjezdarica, koja nastanjuje močvare i rado se zadržava u trsticima stajaćih voda.
Opis
Siva čaplja je velika ptica duga 90-100 cm, s rasponom krila od 175-195 cm te težinom od 1 do 2 kg. Perje ove ptice je sive i bijele boje. Hrani se ribama i žabama, a osim njih i malim sisavcima i pticama. Zimi kada se stajaće vode zalede, sive čaplje odlaze do najbliže rijeke i tamo provode zimu. Odrasle sive čaplje na glavi imaju prepoznatljivu kukmu crne boje. Sezona parenja počinje u veljači, a završava krajem travnja. Siva čaplja gnijezdi se u koloniji. Mužjak i ženka zajedno grade gnijezdo, ženka izleže 1-6 jaja koja su svjetloplave boje i ovalna oblika. Inkubacija traje oko mjesec dana, a za mladunce skrbe oba roditelja.
