I've been trying to get a picture of this bird for a few years and I finally did. He/She occasionally appears at Pike's Ravine, at the corner of High Street and Beach Street, seeming to take a quick rest before flying away towards Pameacha Pond. He flew away too quick for me to capture an action shot, which would have shown quite an impressive wing span.
I'm no expert, but I call it the blue heron. Has anyone else seen a bird like this around town. Can anyone tell what type of bird this is?
