    I just uploaded a picture to my profile of a strange wild bird (the bird perched on a branch over the pond algae). Maybe one of you birdwatchers know its identity. It stopped by at our pond one day years ago and hasn't returned. It was in the summer in CT. We were wondering what it was. Thanks :)

    It looks like a Green Heron to me.
