Long Legged Birds

On one of my ventures into the backwoods and backwaters of the Tennessee River, I came upon these birds ambling around in the shallow waters. Maybe because of global warming, it has been reported that certain types of water birds, similar to these, have been seen in the North Alabama area where they had not been seen before. These are just one type of long legged water bird that I have observed recently. I have actually seen a at least three types, two types of the larger crane like birds, and depending on whether these are blue heron juveniles or a separate species, I have seen one and maybe two chicken sized long legged water birds also. While they are somewhat rare in these parts, it is my understanding that certain of these birds are indeed rare, and even endangered anywhere. If you happen to know about this particular water fowl, I’d appreciate it if you’d let me know.
