Nycticorax nycticorax


This is the first time that i see this kind of heron in chapultepec lake, i could spend all day seeing this bird, i liked to find this heron in park.


This heron is migratory in the northernmost part of its range, but otherwise resident (even in the cold Patagonia). The North American population winters in Mexico, the southern United States, Central America, and the West Indies, and the Old World birds winter in tropical Africa and southern Asia.
