Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Black-backed Bittern, also known as the Black-backed Least Bittern or Australian Little Bittern, is a little-known species of heron in the Ardeidae family found in Australia and southern New Guinea. Only recently separated from the Little Bittern as a full species, it is one of the smallest herons in the world.The bittern has sometimes been regarded as a subspecies of the Little Bittern, or of the New Zealand Little Bittern. However, molecular evidence has shown that it is more closely related to the Yellow Bittern than to the African and Palaearctic forms of the Little Bittern and is now recognised as a full species.show more
