Little Heron
Butorides striatus

This picture was taken in PJ, along the Federal Highway near the Astaka Sports Complex.

Identifying this juvenile bird is quite confusing as I got mixed up with the Cinnamon Bittern.

These residents and winter migrants are commonly found around marshes, ponds and large drains in search of food. Next week, many of their relatives (perhaps in their thousands) are making their way from the Northern Hemisphere such as China, Mongolia, Russia..... would be visiting us here in Malaysia.

One can go to the MNS Kuala Selangor Bird Park and also the Paya Indah Wetlands in Dengkil (which was re-opened last Sunday) to try to spot these visitors.

Get your 'Bins' ready,'s Birding Time folks!
