Juvenile Rufous Night Heron

20th February 2009

From the tip given from Jordan and wife, I went one of the modern village in the city for the Rufous Night Heron. When I arrived, saw at least 10 adult and juvenile birds roosting together with the Black-crowned Night Heron at one of the tree surrounded by water from a nearby drain. Other birds seen, Oriental Magpie Robin, Yellow-vented Bulbul and Oriental Reed Warbler.

This Heron becoming uncommon now and a small colony also found at Kota Kinabalu Wetland Centre. It is norturnal and feed on fish. Hope the birds remained at the small patch.

Digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope ED82, SRB-Griturn Mk II adapter and Fujifilm F31D

Juvenile Rufous Night Heron, still long way to go ...

Black-crowned Night Heron

Happy birding my friends :)
