Where's Waldo?

Can you find the bird in this photo?

I was walking my dog when I saw the reflection of a large bird in the water. It took a few minutes to spot the actual bird. He looked like a kingfisher but he may have been a great blue heron -- there are a pair of herons who fish in our cove all the time.

I took several pictures but most were hopelessly blurred due to camera movement which in turn was due to my dog dashing around me in circles on the leash, making it hard to hold my hand still. It as no use telling him to stop because he cannot hear. I imagine the bird would have heard and flown away.

If you didn't spot him, he's on a branch on the downed tree at the left.
