Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Very small heron of wet and open grassy areas such as meadows and paddy fields. Uniformly bright rufous upperparts of adult male unmistakable. Female and juvenile have pale streaked belly, dark streaks and spots scattered on the wings and back, and are dark brown with some rufous tones above. Females often have light spotting on the wings, potentially causing confusion with female Von Schrenck's Bittern, which has brighter and more solid white spots and a prominent dark crown lacking in Cinnamon.
