night bird

Check out this bird that was in our backyard tonight. It was about the size of an owl with long legs. Have no idea what it is.

You can tell it's size better by the last pic. Compare it to the
bender board and the stone dog. It walked like a chicken lol.
Have any ideas on what kind it is?
The flash gave it those red eyes. They weren't like that.

Comment

I suggest it is a juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron.
