Yesterday, while in the local Barnes & Noble killing some time before lunch, I finally remembered to look up what type of bird this is:
It turns out to be a “Green Heron”, so now I have a type to put with the bird. I have seem him a lot lately, usually fishing for crawfish in the pond by my apartment. He is quite fun to watch because his actions seem quite erratic to us humans, hence the name “Crazy Bird”. More info on his species can be found here.
