We saw a black-crowned night heron!

Fishing in shallow water. In the Don Valley. On our Saturday bike ride.

The one in the picture that I linked to looks almost blue, but they’re really just grey.

The black-crowned night heron is Nycticorax nycticorax.

There’s another picture of one on this page: Balboa Pavilion, Newport Beach.
