Black-Crowned Night Herons

(Nycticorax nycticorax)

   About the size of a snowy egret, these small herons have much shorter necks, a stocky body, large head, and distinctive coloring. As shown on the third image on this page, they have a pair of white head plumes that trail over their shoulders. Three images, please scroll down.
