Hi all
I'd better point out that I'm not suggesting that Keith Fisher's photo 
of the adult heron is of the 'same' birds as the others - just that it is 
one of the 'funny herons'. As some of you have pointed out, there 
are significant differences between the adult and the (apparent) 
immatures. As well, there have been other "funny adults" that have 
been seen, but which have differed in being less grey on the 
upperparts and soft parts. Hopefully the photo of the adult bird will 
make possible some kind of conclusions, as it is a very distinctive.
