Pacific heron

Ardea pacifica

Description:

A sooty black heron with white neck and head. I am not feeling secure about this ID since the beak seems to be too short. I would love some feedback.

Habitat:

Feeding in a billabong along the NSW side of the Murray river. They are common in freshwater wetlands and loving the recent flood conditions.

Notes:

This bird is quick to make an exit when it noticed it had caught my attention.
