One of the things I like about my condo is the back overlooks a small pond. Ducks and geese are common inhabitants but this year it has been sporadically visited by a bigger bird. I don't know anything about identifying birds but it appears it may be a Great Blue Heron .
It's difficult to take a picture of it as it seems to spook easily. I took the picture Saturday with a telephoto lens. The sun was setting but it was not actually as dark as the picture appears.
