Can anyone tell me what bird this is? He just made me smile with his ambitious lifting!

agree with Allan but to be absolutely correct, it's
Yellow-crowned Night-Heron
There's no accounting for why some names are written as they are. :confused:

That's why biologists need to study grammar! ;)
One problem is that there seems to be no rhymor reason to hyphenations. Capitalization of names is fairly consistent, though.
A dose of Latin doesn't hurt, either :).

A bird by any other name....! Thank you both Larry and Nick. I guess biology and grammar both involve some form of dissection :D
