The green heron is a small heron of North and Central America. It was long considered conspecific with its sister species the striated heron , and together they were called "green-backed heron". Birds of the nominate subspecies are extremely rare vagrants to western Europe; individuals from the Pacific coast of North America may similarly stray as far as Hawaii.
