Strange Bird/変な鳥/奇怪的鳥

I really need to get a guidebook to the animals and plants in Taiwan.  There are so many species here that are so different from what I'm familiar with that sometimes I don't have even a clue as to what to call them.  Case in point:  This weird bird.  What is this?  I saw it on the Cheng Kung campus twice recently.  It was walking around eating stuff on (in?) the ground.  I didn't see it fly, so I'm not even sure whether or not it can fly.  (With all the stray dogs around here though, it seems hard to believe it could survive without being able to fly though.)

UPDATE:  It may be a Malayan Night-Heron.
