That's a juvenile Black-Crowned Night Heron, distinguishable from
Yellow-Crowned by the size of the spots and extent of yellow on the bill.
A good find for Albany County. Presumably this is the same bird Curt

These aren't the best photos - but he had a bright yellow beak and

afternoon, right down by the pavilion.

Is there enough there to say what kind of heron-- or ??.

There was also a pair of cormorants thinning the goldfish 'herd' at
the other end of the lake.
