Sorry, everyone. I’ll fire the editor for that mistake. It is a Great White Heron. There is nothing to compare size in the posted shot but the bird was the size of a Great Blue, not the much smaller Great Egret. We were on the lookout for both the Great White and Wurdemann’s. Looking at my eBird reports for the day, we did see a Great Egret in the bay, just not that particular bird.
Thanks for keeping a close watch. So many details, I hope that’s the only error!

Many thanks for an enjoyable write-up of a place I'd love to visit - and some top birds!

BTW you might get your editor to review the labelling of your night heron ...;)

Cheers
Mike

Huh? What! Can’t be!! Maybe the white balance in the camera was way off! That black head sure looks washed out 🤪.
(EBirded correctly as Yellow-crowned.) Nice to know someone is not only reading these reports but not falling asleep in doing so.
Thanks, Mike, for all your comments! 👍
