Thank you twitchy!. I looked at a picture of a Green Heron, but  couldn't find one with that much streaking.


You're welcome. The streaking seems to vary, but I have found some photos/videos that show a lot of streaking like in your picture.

Juvenile Green Heron

Also, "shorebird" is a taxonomic grouping, not a behavior grouping, and is restricted to various families in the Charadriiformes such as the plovers, oystercatchers, sandpipers.... Herons and other, similar, larger birds are best termed "wading birds."

Thank you for that Tony! I always learn something new from this  group (well, new to me..lol), that's why I love it so much.
