Pulau Rambut is a small island in Jakarta Bay that has been used as a breeding and roosting habitat for various waterbird species, especially the Ardeidae family. The study aimed at estimating Ardeidae family abundance and mapping the distribution of nest trees. The study was conducted in January-February 2020. Birds were counted using the census method, while the coordinates of nest trees were taken to map their distribution. There were eight Ardeidae family species (grey heron, purple heron, little egret, intermediate egret, cattle egret, great egret, pacific reef heron, and black-crowned heron). Ardeidae family’s abundance was 3,681 individuals dominated by egret species (47%) and black-crowned night heron (39%). The number of waterbirds decreased sharply compared to previous studies. Nest trees were distributed mostly in the east of the island, consisted of 3 sub-colony.
