Can You ID This Bird?

  1. I was at the Palo Alto Bird Sanctuary a couple days ago. Had a pretty terrible day photographically, although I enjoyed the place and the birds. For some reason I couldn't get good sharp focus out of my 70-300VR on most shots, which is pretty rare for that lens. Oh well.

    Anyway... this is not a great shot, but I am wondering what this bird is?

    That's a Black-crowned Night Heron. Nice image!
  3. Thank you. Most of the pics I found of them on the net don't have that pronounced blue color on the wings and the crown, so I wasn't sure.
