Great Blue Heron

I'm pretty confident that this is a juvenile Great Blue Heron.  An adult would have a black and white crown and this guys seems to be all dark.  Also the striping on the throat and neck indicate juvenile.  While I was taking these photos another birder asked me how many photos of a Great Blue Heron do I need?  The short answer, for my project, is at least one a week.  But really I'd photograph them every day.  And when one flies right over my head...well, I'm not going to miss that.  Each bird is an individual and I can learn a lot from the photos I take.  Not to mention, I enjoy it. Plus who doesn't love a flight sequence??
