Grey Heron with Identity Crisis?

© Roy Norris
Grey Heron with Identity Crisis? Has anyone else ever seen a Heron sitting on the water like a Goose. I saw this today at Ferry Meadows. The water was too deep at this point for it to be standing on the bottom. At first glance at a distance, I thought it was a Greylag.

Birds of the Western Palearctic says: "Exceptionally
recorded swimming and diving for food."
