Online Auction Description

Anguilla 1977 issue, Scott's Catalog # 275, 1¢ Multicolored MNH, stamp. This stamp depicts the Yellow Crowned Night Heron. This is a great addition to a collection of birds. This stamp is in good condition, and has no defects or flaws.

The yellow-crowned night-heron (Nyctanassa violacea, formerly in the genus Nycticorax), is one of two species of night herons found in the Americas, the other one being the black-crowned night heron. It is known as the Bihoreau Violacé in French and the Pedrete Corona Clara in Spanish.

A related heron, the Bermuda night heron, was endemic to Bermuda, but became extinct following human colonisation.

General shape:

The Yellow-crowned Night-Heron is a rather stocky wading bird, ranging from 55 to 70 cm and from 650 to 800 grams, the females being a little smaller than the males. The neck, slim when extended, gives the bird a comically large head compared to its body, with a large and heavy bill.

Colors:

The body and back are a smooth grey-blue, with a black scaled pattern on the wings. The long legs are yellow and turn coral, pink or red during courtship. The most characteristic part of the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron is the head: black and glossy, with white cheeks and a pale yellow crown going from the bill, between the eyes and to the back of the head, giving the bird its common name. Such colours make the face appear striped in a horizontal black-white-black-white pattern. Long, thin, white feathers grow to the back of the crown during mating season. The bill, also black, is thick and deeply set under the eyes which are dark orange or red.

Feeding:

The Yellow-crowned Night-Heron eats mainly crustaceans (crabs and crayfish) as well as insects, some fish or worms. It can also feed on lizards, small rodents and small birds. The geographic location of the heron is closely related to the prey it may find, and the size and shape of its bill allows it to hunt for prey of specific size.
