  Indian Pond Heron

 

 PREVIOUS BIRD NEXT BIRD Nepal

An Indian Pond Heron, also commonly known as Paddybird (fig.), spotted in Lumbini, Nepal. In winter plumage it is light brown and streaked, with white underparts and white wings.

 

This makes it almost indistinguishable from the non-breeding plumage of the Javan and Chinese Pond Heron (fig.). See also List of Thai Animal Names.
