Green Heron

Relative to other herons, Green Herons are short and stocky.  Its neck is often drawn in.  Its coloring often looks dark, but in good light the adults display a deep green back and crown.  Juveniles are browner.  It crouches and waits then springs its head forward to grab small fish and frogs with its dagger-like bill.
