They are North America’s largest heron. Often seen standing silently along inland rivers, lakeshores, and coastal waters. This one was spotted on the Long Bayou, an estuary area. It may have been looking for a mate. Its necks is stretched out, chest feathers are frayed and it looks freshly preened. Crest isn’t raised but sure is majestic.
