The Pacific reef heron is a species of heron and is usually seen in southern Asia and Oceania. It is a typical coastal chook, and particularly likes to stay on rocky islands. Some members have fully white plumage whereas most Pacific reef herons are darkish with charcoal-grey plumage.
The chook is very territorial, and lives principally alone, generally in pairs or in small household teams, occupying a small reef or coast. Most of them are lively in the course of the day, however they’re extra lively at nightfall. Besides in the course of the breeding interval, the chook usually forages quietly or walks slowly on the rocks alongside the coast. Generally it additionally stands on the rocks alongside the water immobile for a very long time. However when threatened, it could fly pretty quick.
