Photographer's comments:

I do not know the name of this bird type. It allowed me to move in quite close hence the wide-angle look.

    Both young look similar so this is tricky but the black crowned night heron juvenile has the orange eyes.

    I'd go with American Bittern as well.

    This is a juvenile Black-Crowned Night Heron (i.e., he was born in the spring). He will look like this until January. During his first summer (Feb-Aug) he will begin to look a bit more like an adult with a slatey grey cap (crown) and back. By next autumn he will look like an adult.
