I think this is the same bird patrolling the beach, hanging out near the fishermen and their poles.   He must not feel threatened in any way as he lets me get very close to him for sketches and reference photos.

On the Gulf Coast where there is lots of fishing going on all day.   Fishermen set up multiple poles and sit in their chairs along the waters edge watching them.   Every time I go down to the beach I see this great blue heron hanging around the fishing poles.   He or she wanders up and down the beach stopping near a set of poles, looking hopeful.   The smells of bait and fresh fish must be just too much of a draw for it.
