Yellow crowned night heron?
I have been seeing regular ebird reports of the yellow crowned night heron in the Los Angeles area. When I've looked online for maps of this bird's region, it does not appear in California. Are the observations in the Los Angeles area an abberation? I am used to seeing the black crowned night heron but not the yellow crowned. Thank you!

YCNH sometimes shows up in southern California in migration.
