Abstract: The Black-crowned Night heron (Nycticorax nycticorax) is a known visitor in Sumatra with more sighting records in the eastern side of the island. Meanwhile, on the west, it was historically recorded from only two offshore islands, namely Nias and Enggano. During the waterbird survey from early 2018 at Pasir Jambak Beach of Padang City in the coastline of West Sumatra, a Night heron was spotted among the colony of mixed egret species. This is the first record of its kind in the province of West Sumatra, although, previous records cover almost all provinces in Sumatra. The summary of the compiled records of this species indicates that it is probably a vagrant along the western coastline, while it visits more frequently on the eastern side.
