Huge black bird sitting where the Heron usually sits. On a freshwater canal on the edge of suburbia. Sorry about the quality... taken with a phone at dusk. Appeared to be either drying its wings or shadingg the water to eliminate reflections - I suspect drying as I've seen cormorants do that before. Was surprised to see this so far inland. Also took some video but there's no way I can see to put that up.
