It seems more likely that this bird died from some sort of trauma, such as
by colliding with an overhead power line. A sidewalk wouldn't seem to be
proper habitat for a night-heron, which is typically found in wetlands.
That would seem to be a more typical place to find one that is sick (such as
from West Nile).

Night-herons are usually fairly active at night (hence their name), so it
may have collided with something during the night, or at dawn or dusk. Are
there any overhead wires anywhere near to where the dead bird was found?

West Nile Virus maybe? There have been reports of birds dying from that. The
bird should probably be taken to a lab for testing.

A friend sent me this photo of a dead bird she found on her sidewalk. It
looks like a young bittern (sort of). Can anyone help me out with this?
