Nycticorax nycticorax hoactli
Mottled gray-brown, black-billed bird, ~ 15 inches long.
Insular tropical coastal lowland.
Spotted at a koi pond on the grounds of the Aulani Resort. The credit for this spotting goes to my sharp-eyed granddaughters who, in near total darkness, observed the heron crouched on a rock, by all appearances stalking something in the pond. I merely shined some light on the subject.
