Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax) feeling the heat

In all these years, I have never seen a bird sticking its tongue out for thermo-regulation. Infact, I kept on zooming this picture to confirm that it was indeed its tongue.

Interestingly unlike a human tongue, birds have bones in their tongues.

So if you haven’t seen a bird panting, then today is your lucky day 🙂
