We saw two of these birds at Minnehaha Falls in Mn and we couldn't figure what they were until we found them on this website. Very different looking bird. we thought it was a duck until we noticed they didn't have webbed feet.

I saw one behind my condo at Upland Hills Golf Course Upland, CA 91784
Is it common for this area?

JRT...They are certainly a unique bird. I had never seen one in the area of Pennsylvania in which I live...the one in the photo was seen at Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge on the Delaware coast.

I have seen this Night heron for the last two years here in Nebraska. Crystal Springs is a park with three lakes and it has attrached at least 55 of the birds in my Nebraska bird book. However, the Night heron is not included in this book. I read that it is usually in the West of Colorado and as far as South and North in that area. Why is it now in our area? I love it but am curious. Is it the changes in the weather? Saw three of them this year. They stayed for a couple of weeks. Not very nervouse about having it photo taken. I have beautiful photos of them.

I took a picture of a bird so similar. Standing along our lake. Is it possible for it to be in No. Nevada?

Glad you had this one. I took a photo of it this morning and couldn't figure out what it was.
