With legs and neck fully outstretched, and the comparatively small wings set half way between bill and toes, they look as i they might fly backward or forward with equalease. They progress more rapidly than a heron, and, when hurried, fly with a singular serpentine motion of the neck and body, as if they were crawling intheair."-FRANK M. CHAPMAN.
