Bird at the pond’s edge

D81_6876_z imageWe were surprised to spot this crow-sized bird along the shore of the no-name pond the other day. At the time and after checking my references, I am not sure if this is a heron or a bittern (a least American bittern is a good possibility from field mark descriptions).
