Rodrigues Night-Heron Nycticorax megacephalus is known
from a number of bones, and from Leguat's 1708 and Tafforet's
1726 accounts, from Rodrigues, Mauritius.
Leguat mentioned that they were easily caught (although
they were not quite flightless), and this hunting presumably
caused their extinction. In 1761, Pingré specifically noted
that there were no longer any butors on the island.
