Excellent captures Tim. Looks like our Little Green Heron.
Yea, it does look like the Green Heron. but I thnk it is bigger. This guy is about 18" tall.

That is really amazing, the huge change! My, isn't he pretty in his breeding colors! VERY nice images!
Oh yes, he's looking good.

The first image looks like an American Bittern.

Super pictures

Thanks Gale, the Pond Heron has white wings. I have never seen Bittern before, but do they have brown wings? I saw one all brown big bird flew by that day too.
