Accompanying is a link to a photo.  This slow moving heron was working the shallows in Noank.  From a distance it looked like a little blue heron, and was about the right size.  A great egret also working the shallows gave scale.  The photo shows to me more the pattern of a young yellow crowned night heron.  Mid afternoon on a bright day is an odd time for a night heron to be so active.  Comments appreciated.  My previous effort to send a link seems to have failed.
