My sister and I were at my campsite today (Woodland campsite on Upper Buckhorn Lake). My site faces a marshy part of the lake with logs and grasses growing in abundance. About 4:30 PM a crow-sized bird flew in to the shoreline that looked heron-like. We observed it closely for about 10 minutes. Turned out it was a Green Heron! I’ve never seen one before.
