Yellow-crowned Night-Heron

193/365: Yellow-crowned Night-heron

A juvenile Yellow-crowned Night-heron visited our backyard yesterday.  Thanks to my Crossely ID Guide I was able to quickly identify this beautiful bird.  He has a radiant orange eye and beautiful markings.  He stood and watched the backyard for about 30 minutes, just enjoying the shade.  Charlie was very intrigued and just watched the Yellow-crowned Night-heron as she laid down.
