Morning Visitor

by Noreen
(Frederick, Maryland)

I came down this morning to find a large tall grey long-legged bird standing on my front porch. It stood for a few seconds surveying the scene and then flew away. Large wing span. My property backs up to a large pond and I live in Maryland. What kind of bird could it be?

From your description it might be a Great Blue heron.
