Table Of Contents: The green heron is a shy bird, often skulking like a bittern among the weeds at the edge of a pond or in marshes. Unlike most herons it usually nests singly rather than in colonies; the nest is a shallow platform of sticks in a bush or small tree, usually over water.
Abstract: Small chunky heron with short legs. Back and sides of adult's neck are deep chestnut; green on upperparts is mixed with blue-gray; center of throat and neck is white. Greenish-black crown feathers, are sometimes raised to form shaggy crest. Legs are usually dull yellow but in male turn bright orange in high breeding plumage.
