Sometimes we see more birds than reptiles on our outings.

tell me if I'm wrong, but your Black-crowned Night Heron looks more like another Yellow-crowned Night Heron to me. Awesome birds! :D

Very nice. Prothonotary Warblers are one of my favorite warblers.

Yellow-crowned have much longer legs for the tarsi and feet extend well beyond that tail in flight. Not a flight shot there but does appear that the legs are long enough to do that. It's a solid "mark" :)
