Black-Crowned Night Heron
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Black Crowned Night Heron is a small and bulky, very pale grey and black bird with bright yellow legs and a long, white, whispy nape plume. Immatures might be mistaken for Eurasian (Great) Bitterns but are browner, have very large buff or white spots on the upperparts and in flight have more rapid wing beats. Black-Crowned Night-Herons spend most of the day roosting, usually in tree tangles and thickets. They venture forth at sunset to feed. Their call is a frog-like "kwok". They occur in sometimes large roosts.|
