Looks like a Stilt Sandpiper but with red eyes. Stilt Sandpipers have black eyes. MIght be a type of egret or heron.
Any ID ideas? Never seen a bird like this before.
larger one is a female and the smaller one might be the male.
Might be some type of heron.
It’s neck looks too long to be a Stilt Sandpiper
Looks like a Yellow-Crowned Night-Heron. They have that same patterning, they have red eyes, and they wade in the water.
Thank you. I saw a picture on eBird. It’s a young Yellow-Crowned night heron. I thought it was a Stilt Sandpiper, but it had red eyes. Then I thought it was a hybrid black-crowned x yellow-crowned night heron but those are rare. Then I saw a picture on eBird of a young Yellow Crowned night heron and it looked just like that.
