Andy i believe the green Heron is available only in North and Central America while this was taken in India. But the Striated Heron seems to be closely related to the Green Heron so perhaps striated heron id is correct?
Thanks for the confirmation on the western reef egret.

You're right of course, I confuse the two and was too lazy to check the book!
