I'm not real familiar with birds, and I was going to do a quick Google search, but thought maybe I should ask this community (and increase the number of posts)

Agree with C.A.M.

Here is one of an immature Green Heron from last month.

This one is also a Black-crowned Night-Heron juvenile. The bill is too deep and short for Green Heron.

The bill is too deep and short, and the crown and back are too pale for Green Heron. It's a juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron.

Looks like you've got the ID covered above so I'll just say it's a nice shot
