Neat bird at the UC Santa Barbara lagoon. I googled and googled but couldn't figure out what species it is. Anyone? I love the color of the reflection in its eye.
EDIT: It's a Black-crowned Night Heron, thanks for the comments!
I'm at UCSB for a conference for the next 2 days, so hopefully I'll get more cool photos of this beautiful area.
EDIT: I did get more pics! Check out my UCSB gallery - http://www.jawsnap.net/Travel/UCSB2008
