Bird identifications can be challenging, even when you get a good view in good light.

Then there are views of birds like the one above, taken recently in Ken Wiegand's Allendale backyard.

The mystery:  What is it? (Closer view follows.)

The answer: Several folks, including Ken, believe it's a young Black-crowned Night Heron, and Barbara Dilger even went out on a limb in that regard.  Can't disagree. Thanks to all!
