A wading heron found near wetlands. It is a native bird across temperate Asia and Europe. It does do local migrations based on the water availability. They are fairly sized birds with a wing span of over 6ft. This is probably a Juvenile bird as the forehead, sides of the head and the centre of the crown are greyish, whereas in adults these are whitish.
A bird that undergoes magnificent transformation between the breeding and non breeding plummages – from the whites to the leg color. It is seen mainly around feeding cattle and hence the name. This was not seen much before 1952 in the Americas but seen abundantly now.
