Looking out my front window the other day, I spotted what looked like a heron, tinted blue, walking across my front yard. The bird appeared to be about three feet tall, with perfect posture. It took a few steps, and then stood stock still, lawn-ornament still, for several minutes, ignoring the swooping threats of a very distressed bird. It eventually wandered off, before I could get a picture. Does anyone have a similar story to tell?
