Observation details

Bruce Purdy, the Bahamas regional reviewer, brought to my attention that I had misidentified this bird as a Yellow-crowned Night Heron. He pointed out to me that the Black-crowned has the yellow coloring on the base of the lower bill, which the Yellow-crowned does not. Learning something new each day! 12-16-18.
