Javan Pond Heron

นกยางกรอกพันธุ์ชวา 爪哇池鹭
Javan Pond Heron's appearance is very similar to a Chinese Pond Heron.  Only in breeding plumage can they be clearly distinguished, head down to chest of the Chinese type will become reddish brown, while the Javan type will be yellowish brown. This Javan was found today in SRF.
