Great-billed Heron wading in the shallows - Krabi, Thailand

The Great-billed Heron's habitats are largely coastal such as islands, coral reefs, mangroves, large rivers, etc. However, occasionally, it can be found inland in shallow ponds.
It feeds in shallow water, spearing fish with its long, sharp bill. It will wait motionless for prey, or slowly stalk its victim.
