    Default What heron

    I went wandering down at the wetlands without my binocs. Across the water I got a shot of a bird (too far away to be really clear) - that I think is is a heron. It seems to have the outline and beak of a Black-crowned Night Heron, but not the colors.

    An is this in fact the same bird in both photographs. It is on different sides of the same tree..taken about 30 minutes apart

    Can anyone help ?
    (BTW, this was in High Park, Toronto)
    Many thanks

    Hi ariella, it is a Black-crowned Night Heron. The top photo looks like a young bird and the bottom one an adult. Best, Andy
