Can you identify it?

I have seen this weird bird by the pond by our office a couple mornings.  This morning, I took a couple pictures of it (through my office window).  It looks like some sort of a Loon, but I've never seen a bird like this before.  Anyone know what it is?

Here it is with its neck down:

Here it is with its neck extended:

And here it is once it flew up into a tree:

Not sure, but I can definitively say that it is not a loon...

Here's a fun (and free) tool to use when trying to identify birds, it's easy to use and can narrow things down quite a bit. Link

Thanks!  I used that to figure out what it was, then find better pics on the net to confirm.  It's a Green Heron:  http://thebirdguide.com/digiscoping/photos/green_heron.htm

I had no idea it even existed, especially around here!

I think that is a better name for it, actually.  LOL

I'm still freaked out at how much that heron can stretch its neck out.  Freaky little bird.

Those aren't Chickadees, are they?
