Proardea is an extinct genus of heron, containing a single species, Proardea amissa. It stood about 70 cm tall and was very similar to a modern heron in shape. The species is known from rather fragmentary fossils in the area of Quercy, France; dated remains are from Pech Desse, a Late Oligocene locality, but the original fossil, a single right tarsometatarsus, isn't precisely dated and may have come from deposits as early as Late Eocene in age.
