Neighborhood 2015 — photo 74 of 90: A somewhat-large bird in the neighborhood swamp along the Oak Creek Greenbelt Trail. At first I thought it was some sort of bittern, but thanks to input from Judy Cox of Grants Pass, I am now almost certain that this bird is a green heron and not a bittern. Sorry the quality is not so great, but it was quite far away. November 2015. Don’t miss the newer and better photo I took on Christmas Day! Camera used: Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS50.
