Hawaiian Black-Crowned Night Heron, or Auku'u

We walked arouind the Mauna Lani fishponds at dusk tonight, and spotted this guy, already in breeding plumage. He was standing guard at the gate that allows fresh seawater to flow into the first pond, and most of the fish that swarmed the gate were as big as he.
