Striated Heron
Butorides striatus
A Striated Heron (pictured above) is seen with a fish in its beak, on Wangsuk Stream, near Guri, immediately east of Seoul and approximately 50 kilometres south of the border with North Korea.   The Striated Heron is also known as the Mangrove Heron, the Little Heron and the Green-backed Heron.   It is found in small wetlands of Old World tropics, from west Africa to Japan to Australian, and in South America.   There is a Galapagos Islands colour morph which lacks striation.   It is closely related to the Green Heron of North America.
