Excellent photo! Is this some kind of Night Heron?
 
Thanks. Yes it is. It's a Juvenile Yellow-Crowned Night Heron.
 
Thanks Mike for the ID. I have only seen adult YCNH.
 
If you're ever in Charleston, SC. We have many nesting sites in easy to reach locations. This pic was taken in Magnolia Cemetery in downtown Charleston. Its a very active habitat and open to the public.
 
Thanks for the info... I will keep it in mind when I am driving through that area. The only time I have seen them was in Sarasota and they came right up to our motel door at night. They even let me get a flash and take some photos before they slowly walked away.
