Hi everyone, this is another shot from the Dominican Republic. Looks like a type of Heron to me but I cannot find a match in the British bird books. Can anyone tell me the exact name of this bird please.
Thanks
Keith

You are right in thinking it is a heron, a green heron to be precise. Commonly distributed in the Americas, but not found in Europe.

It's a little Blue Heron. Must be a cracking photo as it was quite easy to identify Smile

Quick correction. Put the wrong bird down by mistake but see someone beat me to it.
Should have put GREEN Heron. DOH!! Smile
