rare bird in my swamp from Florida,,adult yellow crown night heron

 i have been watching the swamp road the last few days and  there seemed to be lots of action,, i counted 8/9 cars this afternoon,, i walked down to find out what is going on in the hood,,,,there were people lined up with cameras and scopes watching the heron sleeping,, these guys are serious bird watchers,, i was told the heron was a adult and in full mating colours,, apparently that is very rare ,, there is a website called e bird that has this siting posted and confirmed
     also virginia rails were present scooting around,, great day had by all,,

Nice! 45 reports on E-Bird, creating lots of buzz.

I have seen a *black* crowned night heron here in Toronto. I don't understand their range(s).
