“Eurypyga helias, Sun-Bittern, has a black head, with a white stripe above and under each eye, and a white throat: the remaining plumage “being variegated with black, brown, chestnut, bay, buff, grey, and white-so mottled, speckled, and belted either in wave-like or zigzag forms, as somewhat to resemble certain moths. The bay colour forms two conspicuous patches on each wing, and also an antepenultimate bar on the tail, behind which is a subterminal band of black. The irides are red; the bill isgreenish-olive; and the legs are pale yellow.” A. H. Evans, 1900
