I met this, for me unknown bird, on a logde in the Amazon river. It used to stretch itself like a cobra and sound like one, too. Do not know the birds name. Can anybody help me?

Hi Monica, nice shot. It's a Heron or Bittern, but I can't be any more specific than that. I spent a few minutes on Google trying to isolate him a little better, but wasn't successful. You might do a search here on TN in the same area you shot him in. You never know, you might be lucky.

The colours in this guy are fabulous. I thought he might use a little sharpening so I've prepared a workshop to provide you with some additional options.

This is a Bare-throated Tiger Heron.

This is the Rufescent Tiger-Heron (Tigrisoma lineatum), I meet this guys too in Amazonia, near Manaus. This birds like to sit next to small houses in viliges waiting for fishes...

Bare-Throated Tiger-Heron (Tigrisoma mexicanum) is found from Mexico to northwestern Colombia, and this bird is on Red List, a Rufescent Tiger-heron is very common bird.

Regards, Piotr Angiel
