John Shillinglaw observed a Night-Heron on the Waldo Ponds and forwarded the note below that adds to my first impression that this was potentially a Yellow-crowned. If it can be relocated, this bird deserves some close examination this weekend! ------------ Hello Joe. I looked at a night heron yesterday at Waldo in the area you mentioned which certainly could have been a juvenile Yellow-crowned. This was about noon just before Peter, et Waldo showed up. I was impressed by the longer neck and legs as it was sitting on a mud flat. The bill was clearly all black and the plumage darker than I would expect in a juvenile Black-crowned. I could make out no spots on the wing coverts, but the lighting was not optimal for this. My thoughts were not diagnosed, but likely. It would seem the best time to try to get a better look would be later in the afternoon.
