Tricolored Heron

Tricolored Heron

Take a walk and keep your eyes open.  You never know what you might find.  The other day I decided to take the long way way home from the mailbox, and as I passed a little pond a few blocks from my home I spotted this Tricolored Heron tiptoeing through the tall grass at the water’s edge.  His iridescent blue-green crown and nape, bright white throat and breast feathers and smoky gray wings distinctly set him apart from other South Florida herons and egrets. This was my first Tricolored Heron — a great reward for taking the scenic route.
