  BCNH-1329-150.jpg - Black-crowned Night-Heron ( Nycticorax nycticorax ) juvenile on Alvarado at Claremont, Oakland, CA on June 27, 2012.  Photo by Steve Goldman and Linnea Wahl who commented:  "a bird we spotted at sunset sitting on the phone wire in front of our house. It was about the size of a hawk with no tail, long yellow legs, and a long pointed beak. For the 20 minutes we watched him, he kept his neck tucked in (like he was sleeping) and we didn't see him fly."
