This was a quick fly by of a Yellow-crowned Night Heron. No time for anything but focus and shoot. As I saw the bird I first thought it was one of the Mississippi Kites we were following.
The shape was not right but I kept photographing.
When the bird was finally blocked by a tree I knew what he really was. For whatever reason I have not seen an adult for a month. Not great shots, but still all things considered a ‘keeper’
