This bird flummoxed me for several minutes. I tried to make it into an Accipiter due to the longish tail and the round white spots on the back, as in the first photo. I think it was the microhabitat that threw me: perched where I usually see roosting night-herons and such. Eventually it did a nice stretch and the light dawned as I saw the white rump.
