Humblot's Heron

Humblot's Heron (Madagascar Heron), Lake Tagalala, Selous Reserve, Tanzania.

This species is an endangered species with a declining population of about 1500 mature individuals.

According to our esteemed bird-guide, Neil Baker, this sighting was the FIRST confirmed sighting of this species not only in Tanzania but in Africa as a whole. Needless to say our guide was absolutely ecstatic, to the point of nearly capsizing our boat with his sudden leaping from one side to the other, when he realised what we were witnessing.
