The yellow-crowned night heron (Nyctanassa violacea), also called the American night heron or squawk, summers throughout the southeastern United States and is year-round along the Gulf coast, Caribbean and north-eastern South America. The birds stalk their prey, mainly at night, eating small fish, aquatic insects, crustaceans, mollusks, and frogs, breeding in swamps and marshes. This is one of 3 different new treatments of the same image that I placed here several months ago.
