(The Dark) Yellow-Crowned (k)Night Heron (Rises)


This website is part of the Multiple Organisms project of the biology department at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, in which students create webpages on different creatures.

This site is dedicated to the facinating life of Nyctanassa violacea, or the yellow-crowned night heron.  While browsing these pages, you will find information regarding the classification, habitat, reproduction, life history, interactions, and other fun facts about this waterbird.

We hope you enjoy learning about this heron as much as we have!
