Chinese Pond Heron with its long neck
stretched out. It is in its winter or non-breeding plumage, in which the
head and neck is light brown and streaked, the back brown, and the
underparts white. This colouration is however similar to that of the
Indian Pond Heron (fig.), making it almost
indistinguishable in the field. See also
