Chinese Pond-Heron

Ardeola bacchus

There is a single Pribilof record (St. Paul Island) from early August, which was also the first found in North America. Subsequent Alaskan records have been from the spring or summer and post-breeding dispersal in late summer is likely to have the greatest chance for a repeat appearance of this species in the islands.
