Yes, Black-crowned Night-Heron is the AOU (and ABA, and ARCC) spelling.

Of course my original question:

>How many of you are sure which of these (if any) is the correct 
> AOU-certified proper and correct spelling?

didn't actually ask which was correct, it asked how sure you are that you are sure you know which is correct.   8-)

Enough of this.  Anyone see any good birds?
