This was a small bird. I looked it up to identify it correctly and I couldn't figure out what kind of Egret it is. I am thinking it is a juvenile whose legs have not darkened. And it was 12 - 28 inches tall.
The lens on the camera was 200 - 500 mm and so I could get on him pretty well as he was close to the shore. The point being the image appears a lot bigger than the bird actually was.
Eventually he walked away and then maybe he flew because I didn't see him after my attention turned to the sun coming up over the horizon.
