  1. Have sighted a bird closely resembling Green Heron but mine has a iridescent black cap with ad plumage extending down back of neck several inches. Some reddish-brown on sides of neck so am not sure of my identification. Is it a different species from American Bittern? In a marsh in Newtown CT, June 18, 2015. Also have Great Blue Heron visiting often. Will try to get a god picture, but am afraid that camera is not good enough.
