[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Malayan Night-Heron is a medium-sized heron, about 47 cm in length. The crown is black, with black crest extending to the nape. The upperparts are dark reddish-brown with fine streaks. The eye ring is light blue. Wings are black, fading outward to reddish-brown. Primary feather tips are white. The face is reddish-brown; the chin and upper breast are paler. The yellowish-brown breast has a central row of black streaks.

Malayan Night-Heron is a shy, rare resident of lowland vegetation near water. When disturbed, it may raise its crest. It is seen comparatively easily in appropriate habitat in middle and southern Taiwan.

I found this bird on a lowland bush of Taipei Botanical Garden.
