Javan Pond Heron

For most of the year this bird is brown with white speckles. Breeding plumage is orange, brown and white.

The Javan pond heron roosts in large groups of hundreds to thousands, but it likes to feed alone. It is often found feeding in rice fields and shows very little fear of humans.
