BLACK-HEADED HERON

BLACK-HEADED HERON

Ardea melanocephala

The black-headed heron can be found across sub-Saharan Africa, from Senegal to Ethiopia all the way to southern Africa, where it is common in Zimbabwe and South Africa; and favours open grassy habitats. They may be nomadic if the availability of food demands it. Their diet consists of insects, small mammals, reptiles and birds, doing most of its foraging solitarily. It hunts by slowly and purposefully moving through the grass, rocking its head from side to side; when it spots prey, it freezes and then strikes with its bill.
