Tricolored Heron

"It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds."
-Aesop
Well, it's not very exciting or notable in any way, shape, or form, but... it's a bird. A Tricolored Heron in its breeding plumage, to be exact. I saw it yesterday at a friend's house. (Thanks for the pictures, Mom!)

I'm going birding next week, so hopefully I'll have something more interesting to report on at that time.

Until then,

happy birding

  • I like that bird, it does look different to what I'm used to see :)

  • I like Tri-colored Herons, too. :-) They certainly do look different in their breeding plumage. I even misidentified it at first.

    Chris, your High Island pictures look great. Looks like it was a fantastic trip!

    Happy birding
