Red Car Property: Tracking Birds Near India St

Photo: Gary Vlahakis, july 25, 2016.  Either a very large bird or a little dinosaur walked around the Red Car Property near India Street early Monday morning. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

I immediately thought Great Blue Heron or Egret since India St is not far from the LA RIver and we always see Great Blue Herons fly between the river and the Silver Lake Reservoir. 
Photo: Gary Vahakis, July 25, 2016 (enlarged from the first photo above).  Some of the rear facing toes are not as long as they appear to be, some of the prints seem to include the lower part of the bird's leg, expanding back from the first 3 toes.  (For scale, that's Vlahakis' foot. He is about 6'3" tall.)
