Black-Crowned Night Heron
For me, the Black-Crowned Night Heron [gallery] is easily one of my farvorite birds.  Night herons are a little stocker than other herons, and the Black-Crowned can be distinguished from Yellow-Crowned by their, guessed it, the black crown on the head.  Immature Black-Crowned Night Herons lack the black crown and have a much more brown plumage.  They look a little bit like American Bitterns.  In fact, recently I did an image search for an American Bittern, and many of the search results I found were actually immature Black-Crowned Night Herons.

Black-Crowned Night Herons can be found throughout much of the United States.  Here in Central Florida, I see them most frequently at Orlando Wetlands Park near the influent, though I also see them at Viera Wetlands near the island to the left as you enter the wetlands.  Here are some photos of these magnificent birds.  I'm particularly fond of them in flight.
