Green-backed Heron

(butorides striata)
The Green-backed Heron (or Striated Heron) is a small dark heron which is commonly found by water edges overhung with trees. The juvenile birds (the first three images) are quite different in appearance from the adult birds. These photographs were taken at Shakawe Lodge, Okavango, Botswana.
