Funny, I didn’t even notice the ducks! 😂 

We tend to see what we want to see, it's called Pareidolia. I know, for I have seen women that were beautiful, because I wanted them to be beautiful. But, alas, the next morning I was shocked to find that they weren't beautiful at all! Actually, that doesn't have anything to do with the subject at hand, just thought I'd throw that in to see if anyone was really reading my posts........😏

Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone. Actually, that doesn't have anything to do with the subject at hand, I just thought I'd throw it in...

Black-crowned Night-Heron. Yellow bill, broad streaking on the neck, and large white spots on the wing, all point to BCNH. Also the over all shape is wrong to YCNH.

From what I can see my answer would be Yellow-crowned Night Heron, just by posture. But location would help.

I strongly discourage using posture to identify Night-Herons, at least from a photo. BCNH can be in normal YCNH postures, and vice versa. When you are there watching the bird that is somewhat different .

I agree. I usually use posture in photos as added evidence to an ID. Also, I am usually viewing these pictures on my phone, so with some pictures, like this one, that I need to zoom in to see details, some are lost. For example, I can’t even see the bill in this photo, much less the width of the streaking on the neck. Thank you for correcting me though!
