What's up there?

What's up there?
Maybe it's looking for a tree frog.
Herons and egrets always look awkward in trees, at least I think so.
This is an immature bird, if you look closely you will see fuzz on its head and back.
It was feeding along the edge of the bay then flew up into the tree.

The scientific stuff:
Adult herons are a striking bird with a velvet-green back, rich chestnut body, and a dark cap often raised into a short crest. These small herons crouch patiently to surprise fish with a snatch of their daggerlike bill. They sometimes lure in fish using small items such as twigs or insects as bait.
Photo taken at Rondeau Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada.
