After taking some long exposures at 4-6am in the morning I walked up on the pier which is 24 hours and just took pictures of whats going on at that time. These birds were scavenging every ones fishes lol and some people were even tossing their left overs to the birds to get a show out of them.

after google searches they look like Great Blue Heron?

Thanks guys, This was at the Ft walton Pier in Destin Florida. I'd love to try my hand at birding at other places where better angles and perspectives can be attained. I'd love to get a shot of a bird wings out flying towards me right above the water.
