Hi folks, I'm new to the forum, glad to be aboard. Look forward to checking in often, love the bird ID game!
Was really struggling all evening with this specimen, but think I may have it moments ago. :)
Would love your help, as obvious as it may be to many of you. I'm keen to hear your suggestions.

I took a few long distance photos (attached) of these two individuals while boating up a estuary/small river on the Pacific Coast of Colombia, near Bahia de Solano (Choco province), 200 km due west of Medellin.

I always assumed they were two adults of a South America-only species, and may be remembering them as larger than they were (i.e. larger than night herons). As I type this, I realize they actually be two young siblings, not adults.

Will appreciate your input, esteemed panel of experts!

Cheers,
Zee
