“The Goliath Heron lives in sub-Saharan Africa, and some small populations are found in southwest and south Asia, Pakistan, Syria and Iraq. It is resident and dispersive.
It lives in varied wetlands, lakes, marshes, mangroves and sometimes river deltas. It needs freshwater, but it is also found in coastal islands, in both salt and fresh waters.”
