It is in fact a Green Heron.

The name seems odd, as it's color changes with local and season,. like all the woodpeckers, the people that named it were focusing on the wrong color IMHO! :) :)

It should be named the rufous neck Heron :)

I am amazed by that response! It sure is different to the Green Herons here in Ontario I have photographed!

Update: ok, I checked back and I guess if I squint and imagine, I can see it see it.

Well ID'd!

It looked so straggly in-flight... I'm used to them standing and looking more buff.

WOW! I would never had id'd it as none of the pictures I can find even when putting in Green Heron look like it.

My first one!! only got one sharp"ish" shot out of 10.

I now think the yellow on the tail are the legs!

Here is one from my archives showing similar coloring.

Yep, the yellow are the legs tucked up and some of the other coloring that is probably throwing you is the reflection off of the water underneath. The cross-hatching from those reflections is messing with color/pattern recognition there, I'm sure. Not a bad capture at all for snap situation. Ours out here on the W Coast are typically fairly 'standard' and match up with Greg's sample under normal conditions.

A juvenile Red-tailed Hawk?
Photo taken in North West Montana.
This bird was a ways out there hence the somewhat out of focus shot :)
Thanks for any help in ID'ing this beautiful bird :)

Not sure what it is yet, but the yellow is not on its tail. I believe that's it's feet.

I'm pretty sure its a juvenile green Heron.

If you're replying regarding USN Photog's post, yes, that is most definitely a Green Heron; don't believe it's a juvenile, though. Think it's simply an "off" morph that doesn't match the normal, regional variations. Also tricky because these things look...broken when they fly :D

Yes, I was replying to USN Photog. My statement that it was a juvenile was based on a Cornell photo (external link) labeled as a juvenile. The green patch on top of the head is smaller than the adult photos I've seen and the dark shading on the cheek is missing.

Not really sure what species this is. Thought it may be a jay or woodpecker, but can't really ID it. Photo taken in North Idaho. Thanks for any help.:-)

Oh yes. Nice! That's a Clark's Nutcracker. Not a very common bird, I understand.

Thank you Jack. I do believe you are correct in your ID. Lived here most of my life, and this is the first time I have seen or heard of this bird.ߙ

This was at Scamander on east coast Tasmania.
There were two Honeyeaters - Yellow Throated and New Holland present but this one is unknown bird to me

I'm not familiar with it either Richard but some digging turned up a feral called common greenfinch, Chloris chloris, from Europe, SW Asia and N Africa.
