YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON Nycticorax violaceus

PREVIOUS

Probably not closely related to Black-crowned Night-heron, this species is found primarily in the Americas and Galalpagos. It is more tied to coastal habitats, specialising in a diet of crustaceans, although it may be found inland feeding on more typical heron prey such as frogs.
