Birds – The Goliath Heron

(A. Goliath) of tropical Africa and occasional in India is another elegant species, being about fifty-four inches in length and having the head and crest-feathers chestnut. South America is also the home of a species allied to the European Heron, namely, the Cocoi Heron (A. cocoi). This species, however, does not nest in communities, at least in Argentina, and is usually seen singly or in pairs, fishing along streams and marshes.
