Subject: [cobirds] Yellow-crowned Night-heron at Blanca Wetlands
Today, while conducting her shorebird surveys, Lisa Rawinski found a first
year Yellow-crowned Night-heron at Blanca Wetlands (Alamosa County).
Currently, the wetlands are closed but will be open to birders on July
16th. The bird was seen in the wetlands just to the NW of the parking lot
at North Mallard.

This will be a first San Luis Valley record, so far as I know.

Interestingly, Righter and Andrews said "....very rare nonbreeding
visitor...most birds being seen in mid-July and later are probably migrants
or post-season wanderers." Looks right on.
