Bird on the Bridge

I was walking across a man-made lake when I saw this bird perched on a bridge.  Can anyone identify it?  Is it a crane? a stork?  It’s either native to or visits the Peach State. Its plumage consists of dark grays-blues. It has a crest of dark feathers.  When it flew away moments later, its wingspan was probably 10 feet.  Fuscous colored feathers were spaced out throughout its wings.
