Yellow-crowned Night Heron - Another Juvenile

I found this bird feeding at the edge of Matthew's Lake on the first day of October.  I thought it was a Great Blue Heron at first from a distance but soon realised it was far too small and short-necked.  This species is fairly regular in Nova Scotia in the Fall but it's mostly juveniles that show up here.
