Chinese Pond Heron, almost completely
changed from its light brown and streaked winter plumage into its breeding
plumage, in which its head and breast become deep chestnut, its back grey,
and the underparts white.
It occurs in
lowland regions and its natural habitat consists of shallow
fresh and salt-water wetlands and ponds, where it feeds on insects, fish
and crustaceans. See also
