Lonely GBH. Not another creature anywhere in sight.

"Great blue heron", I take it. Over here, we just have grey herons. The shoulder patch on this one looks even stranger at small scale than when looking at full size. A bull's eye does not seem like an evolutionary advantage...

Here's a closer shot from a while back. The shoulder patch may be advantageous. If prey focus on that pseudo eye they may not noticed that long neck streaking that way. Kind of ocelots with that bight round spot on the back of their ears to help them escape.

Great shot: it's not as pronounced here.  Your theory is something I haven't thought of.  Nature is really complex!
