Okay, I think I finally found the bird in this one... is that a cormorant below the stick?  :P

Not a cormorant, it was either a blue heron or an egret.. I'm pretty sure it was an egret.

And it's on the left, a little less than halfway up.  My impression was Great Egret, but I couldn't say "pretty sure".

There are both blue herons and great egrets in this area and the shape looks more like a blue heron to me too.  I am pretty sure I remember white though, which means it was an egret.
