Humblot's Heron (Ardea humbloti)

Ianantsony, Toliara, Madagascar. Endemic, Endangered.

 

On our way out to the island Nosy Ve, we stopped by this cliff and found several of these Endangered Humblot's Herons where they nest - they are becoming rare due to their favoured wetlands habitats being destroyed. This is a juvenile/immature bird, lacking the black cap of the adults.
