Hi,

it's very difficult to ID it with the little bit of info you have given. Where are the brown spots and was the coloring on it's head a light color?

Knowing what color it's legs and beak are would also help a lot? Where you by a lake?

Several birds, that live along the rivers, have similar features to what you saw. I saw a green heron for my first time, along the Charles River.
