Indian Pond Heron

Posted on Updated on

Nepali Name: आसकोटे बकुल्ला (Aaskote Bakulla)

Notes:
1. The transformation this bird goes through from non-breeding to breeding plumage is just amazing.
2. Kind of hard to spot when resting. Flies off with a flash of white. Wonder how does that make sense evolutionarily?
