Another Unusual Visitor

This little water feeder has also frequented our duck pond in Ottawa, and we have no idea what it is.


Any ideas?

It looks like a type of Heron, perhaps a Green Heron?

If anyone knows for sure, please let us know!

Posible one more in Shedden

Can you tell me how big this bird is. I have one at our marsh, eight to ten inches in height with green wings.

I'm not sure whether this bird in the picture, above, is a Bittern or a Green Heron, but if you follow these links to more information, you may be able to figure out which one you have seen!

Could be a Bittern

This could be a North American Bittern.
