Buckeye 1, Thanks for the ID: Green heron Butorides striatus
This is such an amazing bird! I almost never saw it. I could barely see it with my naked eye and I just thought that it was some duck. Finally, I thought...it doesn't walk like a duck, so I zoomed in on it and got a nice surprise! Later, after returning home, I found that my camera had caught it earlier when I was taking photos of egrets and a gray heron, but I hadn't seen it. Also, it's small and fast!
