Green Heron spotted at a local park (Springbrook Park in Alcoa, TN) yesterday evening. We saw an immature down there a couple of days ago but I didn't have my camera. We were looking for it yesterday and didn't see it, but did see this adult. This is the first time we have seen Green Herons at this park. This seems encouraging. (Here's another view.)
