Yellow-crowned Night Heron #6/50 Checklist

While enjoying the variety of shore birds one early morning at Bunche Beach in Ft. Meyers, I spotted this way way (way) across the water, and he shortly disappeared into the thicket.

Interesting facts:

 He is a medium-sized heron, and a rather chunky gray bird. Solitary and nocturnal, it prefers saltwater areas. Common throughout Florida.
