Should probably start a tab here....

This fine feathered friend was photographed on October 12, 2016 on Blackpoint Wildlife Drive, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.  I've only seen it this one time.

looks like a juvenile black-crowned Night-heron to me.

Thank you!  I'm literally going through thousands of wildlife photos I've taken in this area over the years and sorting them by species.  Thank you again!

Immature not juvenile

Correct. It is already bringing in the black crown, so is molting, so is not a juvenile.
