Bare-throated tiger heron

tigrisoma mexicanum


Gives a deep-throated, roaring call, living up to its "tiger" name. Almost three feet (80 cm) high. Long thick neck, yellow throat, holds head horizontally, striped back of neck, short legs.


Found in mangrove swamps, lowlands, wading rivers, and wet pastures. I saw this one in a pool along a stream near a mangrove swamp at Hacienda Baru National Wildlife Refuge near Dominical, Costa Rica.
