Old Friends and a New Visitor

  The large Heron stopped by to do some fishing...

...and he got lucky..  I know it looks like weeds but in the mess there IS a fish!

This is a juvenile of our local Grackle ..she was waiting up in the tree above where I was sitting so I just aimed up and snapped her picture.. she's the one that will take bread from my hand.

Ok.. so..  here's the new visitor... I have no idea what it is.. I've looked in my bird book but haven't found it so if anyone has any idea what it is let me know.. Unfortunately it flew off and I probably won't see it again.

One of my neighbors thinks it is a Greenback Heron..  It could be!

I can't help with the 'what is it' aspect, but it is a beautiful bird. I hope it returns/hangs around.

That Grackle is gorgeous!! And I was going to guess some type of Heron before I got to the bottom of the post! Maybe it is a heron. It's beautiful no matter what it is!
