Neighborhood visitor - blue heron

Last weekend we had an immature blue heron walking around in our channel.  At one point he jumped up on my neighbor's rowboat that was sitting on it's side. He seemed to have found something. He was still a little unsure of himself and his balance. I snuck outside with my camera and was able to take a few pictures before he noticed me. He eventually wandered down the channel. This bird will eventually turn all blue. You can usually tell an immature blue when he's white by his lime green legs. I took the below picture later that night from our backyard. Before you get to the house in the middle the channel turns left and takes you out into the upper Tampa bay.
