Thanks for the info, Bruce. I'll be out to look for it this evening.

There are several run-off ponds in Middlebury between the town shed on
Creek Road and Middle Road. There is at least one juvenile night heron
hanging out there. I have seen it fly from one pond to another and
hide in the cattails. The voice is pure Black-crowned (although I
haven’t heard enough yellow-crowns to be comfortable with the voice
difference). My best view was last evening, and the bird appeared very
dark on the back with a longish leg projection — possibly
yellow-crown but we’ll need a better view. Help! Bruce Peterson
