When birds are between the sun and the observer, they can often be hard to ID. They can also be hard to photograph in that situation and you did well!

I can see where a bird this size would be intimidating. The folks at Epcot said there are gulls that hang out around the funnel cake stand and dive-bomb people as they walk away with one on their plate.

I'd agree, the silhouette is that of a wood stork.
