Awkward Teenage Years, Heron-style

This yellow-crowned night heron was taking a morning nap on a rock. They are generally most active at night when they hunt crabs and similar prey. This particular one seems to be molting into its adult plumage. Its head looks adult, but the body is closer to the plumage of a juvenile bird.
