Regarding the tranced heron, I have seen Gr Blue Herons doing the same thing both in Puerto Rico and here.  I have been told that it is part of the cooling process.  I have seen an adult bald eagle in the same pose at the top of a pitch pine and then fly down to the water where it stood for a while.  It has always been on HOT days.  I have pictures of both if anyone wants a look.
