White-faced Heron

Egretta novaehollandiae

Description:

Looks like a White-faced Heron/Egret except for the yellow tinge under the chin, which I cannot find mentioned in any of my books. I can find no mention of a Fijian sub-species.

Notes:

It appears that it has recently been moved from the scientific Ardea to Egretta following DNA testing.
