Water bird

(Boston, MA)

This bird was on the other side of the Charles River, in Dedham MA. The sunlight was especially bright as it was setting, reflecting off the water on to his/her legs.


Would like to know what kind of bird it is. Even if the photo is only average, the experience of seeing it was well above average!
