Here is a true juvenile from two summers ago. It is perched in a pose not often seen for with Night-Herons, a fully extended neck. You can see much more spotting on the wings and back of this one.

It's not a detailed imaged (probably a good thing considering the subject), but this final image shows a Night-Heron emptying its bowels mid-flight. That rope of stuff seemed to stretch for about 20 feet at one point as it fell from the sky.
