I hate to post here since I had a very bad experience my first time. Please don’t reply if you don’t believe me about the size or anything else. Thank you.

In Portland, Maine. The afternoon of May 29th 2019.dark colored bird larger than a crow or gull. Maybe about the size of an Osprey? Had what looks like a white band on the tail? The band is not because of the photo quality and did not appear to be it’s feet although I’m not completely ruling that out. The bird flew right over me and to the ocean ocean. 

 

If you disagree with any of the details I provided please don’t reply to tell me so. Thank you.

That seems like a good fit but there were a few others and it was difficult to choose one. I will add a second photo of the worse quality from a different angle. Just to confirm it. Thank you for your help.

Second photo also looks like a dark heron.  Most likely Great Blue, you're too far north for a Little Blue or Tricolored.
