Interesting. I was going to say that was way out of range but I guess not. They pop up in the Bay Area from time to time, but definitely irregular visitors.

Yah, I saw your observation up there. The distribution map in western North America looks like it could use some work, unless the little blue heron really does have some distinct aversion to crossing the US-Mexico border north, plus the odd-looking oval that includes the Salton Sea.

I also saw wabby's white juvenile--wow, what a transformation to an adult!
