Flying off course to live on Brač, of course

Reason #139: Brač is so awesome that even river birds fly over from the mainland to live here

This little fella flew into a neighbor’s yard the other day.

It’s a Little bittern. No idea how and why it flew all the way here.

Then we checked out the wing span…. so that answers the “how” it flew all the way over here. But “why”… it must have been reading this blog and all the great pros of living on Brač. That must be it.

If it lives around fresh water, looking at the map, the nearest river is Cetina. It would have been some 20km in a straight line.

At the time the photo was taken we didn’t know which bird it was, except that it was probably a river bird. Sandy and Marijana gave us the name. Thanks, guys!
