Bare-throated Tiger-Heron

Bare-throated Tiger-Herons are found from Mexico to northwestern Columbia. I took this photo in eastern Mexico in the 1960s. Unlike many other egrets and herons, this species is a solitary breeder. This bird prefers coastal areas and is often found salt or brackish water. It is also found along rivers and streams away from the coast.

This heron is thought to be common across most of its range. Species has been recorded once in southern Texas.
