great blue heron

the largest heron in north america
in flight, it looks quite large and has a 6 foot wingspan
on a dock, it looks past its reflection for fish
this heron is a juvenile - gray overall and with a black crown 
as an adult it will have a yellower beak and during 
breeding season will have long black plumes on its head
