Huge Bird flew by my window!

Tonight while we were eating dinner a HUGE bird flew by our window!

I was wondering what it might be. Bigger than a seagull or hawk. I think it was a water bird, as we sometimes see them by the river in the park below our building. Maybe a Blue Heron?? I know they are rare, but I see them every once in a while. I almost thought it would hit our window!

It's probably a Great Blue Heron, we see lots of them at the trailer. (they are not that rare up there)

the big birds around here (besides the blue heron) are Turkey vultures and turkeys.... of the course the great canadian goose, but, i'm sure you'd recognize that one!

Yeah. It was bigger than a canadian goose. Must have been a blue heron. Cool. I actually had a weird dream about them last night...in the dream they were nesting on our roof, and a bunch of firefighters came to move them, and the balcony had no railings, and I almost fell down 12 stories. It was freaky!

Nope...bigger than an osprey. It was about way bigger than a canada goose, about 75% bigger....it was long too, with huge wings.

I'd vote on blue heron as well ... freaky things when you jsut catch them outta the corner of your eye huh?

Then again, i'm scared of big birds (Seagulls are big, and freak me out)
