    This heron landed right in front of us this morning at Kenilworth Gardens. Can I have someone validate that this is a yellow-crowned night-heron? I took 4 shots and then he took off.

    Thank you both - this was dumb luck - right place, right time - this was taken at 8:37AM . He had been in another pond about 7:15 and took off - 3 of us did not see him until he flew.
