Outside Anchorage AK Heron-like bird at an openwater spring on a small shallow forzen pond.  grey legs, grey body with dark grey wings. light neck, black cap, yellow bill darker on top, yellow eye, estimate 4-ft wingspan and 18-inch height. have seen it several times this winter.  Does not look like a sandhill in flight- smaller and sleeker.  Too far for photo with my gear.

Any ideas?

What about Black-capped Night-heron? They said 18 inches tall

Good thought although their eyes are more orange to red. A photo, even a very distant photo, might help.
