Bitterns are skulking herons found in reeds and riverside trees, bushes and mangroves. The mangrove heron, Butorides striatus, (seen in the accompanying photo) is found on mudblats and among mangrove roots near the coast. The black bittern, Ixobrychus flavicollis, is found in riverside trees, bushes and reedbeds throughout the interior of the Peninsula.
