One of the most beautiful waterbirds in Belize. I rarely see this bird, though I am sure the Belize Audubon Society knows where it is common ... taken with a 400mm perched on a tripod on the bow of a boat slowly making headway at Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary.
We see them a lot at the South Water Caye Marine Reserve.
