Grey Heron? Not sure!!!!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH PETER TO HELP ME TO FIND OUT THE EXACT SPECIES.

I have captured this picture at Rondebult Bird Sanctuary. I told before this Sanctuary is very close to our home, may be 15 minutes. Early morning saw this bird standing on a top of a tree. Light was good enough. I don't use tripid, better to say don't like. Hope I managed to get well focus.
Looking forward to know the name of the bird.

Hello Srikumar,
This is an immature Black-headed Heron. It's greyer than the immature of the Grey Heron and bill and legs are pale grey, not yellow. Reddish throath.
Beautiful photo in good sharpness and natural colors.
Regards,
Peter

Hello Srikumar,
A wonderful shot of this beautiful Heron. I really like the vertical composition and sharp detail you managed to capture. Excellent exposure, especially considering the full light you had to deal with.
Thanks to Peter we now know its true identity. This is one thing I really like about this site, others are always ready to help out.
