I would like to confirm if this is a Black-Headed Heron. I saw it catch a lizard this morning.

I saw these water birds at Moravet waterhole in KTP. Can somebody please help me wiht the confirmation and ID.

I would guess a Black-headed Heron. It is not the greatest photo, but hope one of you can have a stab at it.

Thanks

You're correct with your Black-headed Heron ID.

Thank you so much.
