Bird Looks Like A Pterodactyl (Pterosaur)

Most afternoons, when the shadows start to lengthen, I see a great blue heron flying north.  The bird weaves in and out of the buildings, looking like a prehistoric Pterodactyl (actually known as a Pterosaur).

During my lunch explorations, I discovered a public garage several blocks away (from work) where I could look down on the rookery.  They’re still pretty far away, but you definitely see the profile.  You can’t see the nest without binoculars, but I was able to watch these birds land on the tree tops and settle in.
