Black-crowned Night Heron
Nycticorax nycticorax

Bihoreau couronne noire (French)
Yaboa real, Guanaba, Guaco (Spanish)

With a range that spans five continents, including much of North America, the Black-crowned Night-Heron is the most widespread heron in the world. It is most active at dusk and at night, feeding in the same areas that other heron species frequent during the day.

Cool Facts:
Young Black-crowned Night-Herons often disgorge their stomach contents when disturbed. This habit makes it easy to study its diet.
The Black-crowned Night-Heron may nest in the same tree with ibises or other herons.
Adult Black-crowned Night-Herons apparently do not distinguish between their own young and those from other nests, and will brood chicks not their own.
