It's called a black crowned night heron (we think). I bet I could punt it at least 25 yards.

    It may be a juvenile, or a terribly overexposed shot, but adults have a black back.

    I think you're right... if it's a bcnh, then it's a juvenile (based on google image search). all I know is I want to punch it in the face for science.

    I'd like to watch it bury it's beak in your big, round belly. . . . for science.

    How many juvenile black crowned night herons could Hextall hit with a freedom shovel?

    Who believes Hextall could swing a freedom shovel without falling over backwards?

    I tried to get a guy to tow it to Idaho. But he said he was busy.

    Guys, the bird didn't show back up today. I think I might have hurt his feelings. Man, now I feel bad.

    You shouldn't have made those snide remarks about his pecker.

    Hey guys, ever since I took this picture and started this thread, the bird has not returned. I kind of miss him and feel sort of bad for making fun of him. man, this sucks.

    It's hard to have a relationship with a bird. They're too flighty.
