    Location: Beartown Lakes Reservation

    Wildlife Seen: 1 Large heron-type black bird

    Behavior Observed:

    This morning near the northwest fishing platform at Beartown, I saw what I thought was a heron standing very still fishing. Then I realized that the bird was black and had a rather short duck-like bill. It was about the same size as a blue heron. What was this?
