Yellow-crowned Night Heron

This young Yellow-crowned Night Heron hangs out around two of our sea turtle nests at Ft. Pickens and I look forward to seeing him each week.  This morning he wasn't quite as shy as usual, so, despite the breezy conditions, I was able to get a little video of him.

He is much shorter than the Great Blue Herons we see more typically at Ft. Pickens and his head is larger and more rounded.  I think he's very dashing!
