From Cornell Lab of Ornithology:
A small, stocky wading bird, the Green Heron is common in wet spots across much of North America. It can be difficult to see as it stands motionless waiting for small fish to approach within striking range, but it frequently announces its presence by its loud squawking.

Adult Description
Small, dark heron.
Long yellowish legs.
Long, dark, pointed bill.
Long neck often kept pulled in tight to body.
Legs and neck long, but shorter than most herons.

Immature Description
Striped brownish on neck and chest. Back brownish with buffy spots.

  • Thank you very much Marvin! He was aware of us, but when we got closer he stood really still. Thanks again!

    nice capture Dave and Trena. They are pretty skittish birds around my part of the world

  • Thank you very much Dave! We have found the same here, but this one stood very still for us. He did not let us get too close though. Thanks again!

    magnificent capture, they don’t like to be seen by humans, lucky you

  • Thank you very much Kathy! This one stood really still, I think hoping that we would move on. But he didn’t let us get too close either. Thanks again!
