agami heron

The Agami Heron's habitat is forest swamps and similar wooded wetlands. They nest in colonies on platforms of sticks in trees over water which may gather more than 100 nests (Fleck 2003). The normal clutch is two blue eggs. This uncommon and localised species is 66-76cm in length. It is short-legged for a heron, but has a very long thin bill. This is a beautiful and unmistakable bird. The neck and underparts are chestnut, with a white line down the centre of the foreneck, and the wings are green. There are wispy pale blue feathers decorating the head, sides of the foreneck and lower back. The legs, bill and bare facial patch are dull yellow.

The Agami Heron, Agamia agami, is a medium-sized heron. It is a resident breeding bird from Central America south to Peru and Brazil.
