Green Heron (Butorides virescens)

Diet: consists mainly of fish but can include insects and frogs and other invertebrates.

Shown standing amongst Florida Native Plants: COMBLEAF MERMAIDWEED (Proserpinaca pectinata) (and others)
against a backdrop of AMERICAN WHITE WATERLILY (Nymphaea odorata)

My take:
