tree dweller. about the size of a large owl. straight bill medium thickness dark colored. black head with stripes straight back from the bill thru the eyes. a white crown in the middle of the head with a tassels or hair like features pointing straight back. very striking. body was gray with long light colored legs like a shore bird.

Appears to be gathering nesting materials but I have only see one bird.

I found a better pic of a yellow crowned night heron in breeding phase and it is a great match. thanks to all that lead me in the right direction.

It looks close to it but the eye stripe went from the bill thru the eye and the head was more cardinal shaped and black. A cold front came thru last night so I have not seen him today.

Could it be a Night-Heron?
