Indian Pond Heron

The Indian Pond Heron, also known as the Paddy Bird, is the most common bird species found all over the World and also in India. It is so habituated with humans that it allows them to get very close to them before it is alarmed and takes the flight. This has made us believe that the bird is short sighted or blind. In Gujarati language it has been named after this trait. Its croaking sound is very similar to a human voice.
