I’m not sure what the bird in the photo above is; anyone know? It’s a wading bird of some kind, spotted down on 1st Street North near the river.
Here’s a larger version of the picture, in case that helps.
Update: According to my sister, who I think is correct, it’s a blue heron.
Also on 1st Street North near the river: a lamppost reflected in a pool.
