photographing and learning about wildlife
I live in Brooklyn with my boyfriend, who gave me the nickname Jamerbean. I am new to wildlife photography and not good, but I enjoy it! :)

Agreed that it is a night heron, but I believe it is a juvenile black-crowned night heron based on the color of the bill (juvie yellow-crowneds have an all black bill): http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Black...
Its crown looks strangely green, but the base of the neck and upwards appears dark gray/black so that would be my guess. It's hard to tell what size it is based on the picture, so tricolored heron might actually be too large.
