I think that this is an immature little blue heron. Can someone confirm?

The Little Blue Heron's breeding habitat is sub-tropical swamps. It nests in colonies, often with other herons, usually on platforms of sticks in trees or shrubs. 3-7 light blue eggs are laid

these inky blue herons are so quiet and still in the water when they are stalking their prey. even when they aren't hunting, they almost go unnoticed. even the beaks and legs are blue.
