Rufescent Tiger Heron (Tigrisoma lineatum)

The Rufescent Tiger Heron (Tigrisoma lineatum) is a large heron that inhabits swamps from Mexico south to Argentina. It is found in all of South America except Chile and Peru.

 

This was the third "lifer" that we encountered on our return trip to Florencia a few KM north of Curillo, Caquetá, Colombia.
