I saw this bird in a marsh yesterday. Does anyone know what it is or what sites are good for bird identification?

Its a heron but i'm not sure which one.. it's not a great blue heron tho... check your bird books for species of herons that are in your area...

A near mature Green Heron.

Black Headed Night Heron would be my bet.

Thanks for the help. I went looking for green heron photos and found these two...

Thanks for the link. I've added the uncropped image to my original post to show more context. 300mm was definitely not enough zoom.
